Since online deliberation has not delivered on the expectations of more considered, democratic participation, the authors propose less focus on technological 'fixes' and more on re-conceptualizing its primary purpose to gathering resonance in an authentic public square. The ideas that emerge can then be deliberated in representative face-to-face public deliberations, with the coherent voice that results contributing to more inclusive, legitimate, and implementable democratic decision-making.
