  1. Congrats Yoram! I jumped in the train recently but pioneers like you seems essential to expand the use of sortition in our institutions.

  2. Thanks and welcome on board, Romain! I think we are still in the early stages of this voyage. There is a long way to cover together.


  3. You mention 67 Facebook followers but I can’t find your page and I don’t see a link to your page on your website?


  4. Hi Kevin,

    I am not really sure about the connection to Facebook. I think Conall set it up. I think the blog is connected to the page of the Kleroterians. I don’t have administration privileges for that page. The number of Facebook followers of the blog is presented to me by the WordPress system.


  5. I think Peter Stone runs the Kleroterians Facebook page… or at least he is the main poster to that site.
