This is definitely an important issue for America, but do we have any information about how this applies to other countries?

Nicholas commented on Innovation in Organizational Design

Andrea, I think this is an important issue that affects many of the other ideas posted in this challenge. No new idea with any impact can be executed without the help of some organization (or government). These ideas need the right kind of support and execution to be more than just drawings and words.

Nicholas commented on How can we use technology to create open democracy?

Meena, thanks for the resources. I'm very interested in Brazil's wiki-legislation, though it clearly needs more development. The mashable article you posted also had a good point in regards to Luke's comment. It pointed out that most of America's congresspeople were sworn in before the digital revolution. So, we can expect some increased acceptance technology (and less shortsightendess :-)) in the coming years, as more techies take office.

Like the voter video too. Nice retrospective that shows this kind of enhanced community we can create with social tech.
