Quasi-civilitic Sites and Organizations

The following list of quasi-civilitic sites and organizations is an effort by the ICI to track and characterize existing civilitic bahavior. Several criteria are necessary for inclusion on this list:

  • The product or service be provided free from monetary cost.
  • The organization must be accessible without membership fees.
  • The organization is globally accessible (small-scale local organizations are too numerous to include).

This is a work in progress. Please feel free to contact us if  you are aware of an organization missing from this list.
