Project of the Moment

If you surf on over to or follow #opencapitol on Twitter, you'll see that someone in Madison had a pretty cool idea.

Here's how it works:
Place a post it note on the obvious physical symbol of whatever barrier, process, or action is clearly impeding your participation in your democracy, examples include:

Unreasonably locked doors
Barricades & ropes
Beside signs with silly rules
Access badges and tokens
Traffic routing equipment
Things that aren’t as they should be like disabled equipment or people not where they should be
For greatest impact, on the note we [at Open Capitol] suggest:

Your Name
Your Hometown
A peaceful civil message to your public servant(s)

Ooops We Went All Technicolor Luther On R Capitol
