Democracy Technology

by gmoke Tue Jan 24th, 2012 at 11:26:23 PM EST

A Facebook group called Upgrade Democracy (http://www.facebook.com/groups/upgradedemocracy) is collecting a list of

teams/organizations working on technology-powered solutions to the systemic problems of governance/group decision-making.

They want help in expanding the list but

Please don't add projects that simply use technology to slightly enhance our current political system (e.g. electronic petitions). We're upgrading the democratic operating system, not tweaking the interface. ;)

The Archdruid Report says the age of machines is coming to an end. Democracy, as a social machine, appears to be one of the first technologies to falter under economic (or broader) decline pressures.
