What's this?

is a web tool for more effective & inclusive assemblies. It wants to be useful for any kind of face-to-face deliberation by promoting brevity & structure, a more equal & balanced use of the right to speak, and the airing & recording of (dis)agreements & emotions.


Start small with Turnometro and use the parts of it that make sense for your event. Turnometro can help you as:

  1. A simple, specialized countdown to timebox speaking turns. Touch the numbers to start counting down, touch again to reset, that’s it!

    • Countdown goes negative to keep the pressure on the speaker but allow for flexibility. Digits are as big as possible and as visual cues, there’s a sand-timer bar going down and traffic-light coloring (green for >50% time, yellow for <=50% time, orange for <=10s left & red for overtime). You can adjust a turn duration, the time steps, the coloring and several other things in the settings.
    • You will notice that no matter how badly someone speaks, with a timebox around it, it’s easy to endure. You’ll hear from shy people who didn’t use to speak before. Excellent speakers will sharpen their speaking and dazzle you with how much it is possible to say in 60 seconds or less. The pace & diversity of participations should increase noticeably. Consistently timing your participations is a bit like finally playing tennis with the net up :)
  2. A synched countdown on multiple screens for your event. Make the timeboxes self-enforceable by being sure that everyone, listeners and speakers can see it all the time (and everyone knows everyone can see the time). This often requires several screens. Synch the other Turnometros simply by entering the auto-generated event PIN.

  3. As a listener at the event, express & record agreement & emotions on a speaker’s turn that will appear in real-time on the screens displaying the time. If 5 or more people express the same emotion

  4. As a participant that wants to speak at the event, queue for your turn just by pressing a button. To avoid repetitions, only 5 persons can queue at the same time. When it’s your turn to speak, your Turnometro shows you your time remaining and your name will be shown on the other Turnometros.

  5. At the end of the event, have a report of how much (or how little) every participant spoke and the main reactions expressed during the event.


  6. This project was prototyped during the Collective Intelligence for Democracy workshop at MediaLab Prado and further developed at the 2016 OGP Summit Hackathon from 7-9dic 2016 in Paris, France. It comes out of 3 years of experimentation at Wikipolitica.
