“I don’t know any other tool that you could use to ask an open-ended question [to 40,000 people] and make sense of the data on the other end.”
“ThoughtExchange is something I’ve wanted to find for the last two years, because it democratizes the [community consultation] process, which is something Oaklanders have been asking for, for a long time.”
“Within minutes [of running an Exchange], there are results that we can post for everyone to see. We can instantly develop a set of themes and topics, and build the day’s work plan right there in front of a room full of people.”
