How do I begin to develop a TED-style direct-democracy electoral web-site? How do we?
Candidates, citizins, officials upload town-hall meeting talks, lectures o issues and solutions in a bid for office. We the people vote them up and down, vote NO Confidence, censure, impeach, link to candidate watch groups, comment, interact, share, plot candidate interests, actions, financial support, votes, etc--like a consumer watchdog. Candidates post profiles--full bios with user interaction--wiki-leaks style siting ethical abuses, financial support and endorsements such as non-profits and outreach groups. Links to articles. Links to NGOs, non-profits, speeches, talks, clips, blogs, etc. Once it is up and running, citizens will act, current officials will pooh-hooh, but eventually use it for advantage and it will stick.
