Pia Mancini Posted 3 months ago Is Technology stopping or abetting political apathy? Can we beat political apathy with technology? Hi A S I've posted this below, but just in case I'm re-posting because we have been working on exactly that same idea for the past year and a half! We are developing a software DemocracyOS (here it's live version in spanish www.democraciaenred.org) that allows citizens to get informed, debate and vote how they want their representatives to vote. Our system, Net Democracy has an offline component, a political party, The Net Party, is the vector through which this collective intelligence has direct impact on government (parliament). The Net Party run for elections in October with candidates who took a vow to vote 100% according to what citizens decided in DemocracyOS. You can see the code in english: github.com/democracyos. My Tedx on the subject http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOn2IIpj7iY (sorry, english subtitles coming really soon) and a presentation we did at The World Justice Forum (english) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lECAWGkvDlg http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/john-izzo/net-party-argentina_b_3786115.html http://www.buenosairesherald.com/article/138655/networking-as-a-political-party Cheers.
