  • Jul 5 2011: Keep in mind that even open source initiatives (ie, wikipedia, firefox) have governing bodies that regulate who contributes and provide vision to the movement, otherwise there would be total chaos.

    I do agree that with the tools we have today, there can be much greater interaction between the government and the average person.
