Representative Vs. Direct democracy in a world of tech.

Do you think that representative democracy will become a thing of the past now that technologies have made Direct democracy a possibility? Pro/Con
Do we need politicians to represent us anymore now that it is possible and practical to set up a system in which people can vote directly on issues?
Do you think that a form of direct democracy would get more people civicly active and attract more voters to the "booths"?
Is it feasible to leverage technology for direct voting on issues or will we always need politicians?
what might an online facilitated direct democracy look like?
