Visible Vote – we like the attempt this project has made, it’s a positive step in the correct direction, but, unfortunately, just a small step at a time when not only a leap will do.  Also, it’s a little too ‘appy’ for our tastes – yes, make it “easy for monkeys”, a solid philosophy, but democracy demands more than just a passing moment while waiting for the red light to change.  As it’s clear they have some solid technical ground work, it could definitely be incorporated into a larger project like OSPF.

Independent Open Source Intelligence Community (IOSIC)we like their Facebook page as it also adopts the Open Source nature so definitely could be an incorporated as a module in OSPF as well.
