I like Norman's characterization of the process as "not so much complicated as comprehensive." Brian's PB process in Ward 1 is indeed simpler, but it's not really all that participatory. Meanwhile Jason's PBW2 process was radically participatory, but not everyone has the time to participate to that extent.

I'd love to see a few more years of these two models operating before much effort was put into developing some synthesized middle-ground. Though we may find the outcomes are very similar, meaningfully engaging and involving citizens is the most important part of PB, and the two models may differ greatly in how they approach this component.
