Is The Coffee Party an example of participatory government?


 A question for others interested in participatory economics and/or participatory government.

I’ve been hearing about this group that calls itself The Coffee Party.  They claim to be a movement that hopes to get thousands of small groups of people together to talk about politics without the usual shrill ideological name-calling.  Has anyone else heard about this or know anything about the it?  Is this an example of participatory government starting to take form or just more politics as usual?
