You should know about
which is a complete list of pages on the Electorama wiki.

It includes
which describes DMC, including history.

DMC currently comes immediately before my own contribution to EM,
No special reason for mentioning that here beyond the fact that I 
like to keep delegable proxy methods in view.... DP, as an election 
method, is a bit of a trick: it is deliberative, using an assembly 
which is chosen, not elected as such, whereas election methods are 
generally aggregative, if they attempt to resolve majority failures 
without a runoff or other such procedure outside the method itself. 
(Asset Voting, invented by Warren Smith, is another deliberative 
method; in fact, it is effectively DP.)

By the way, spiffy changes to the EM wiki! -- since the last time I 
looked carefully....
