Liquid Democracy

I was just introduced to the Liquid Democracy project. The aim is similar to our own, they key difference being our focus on the ProxyAgent technology. Our expectation is to allow for most of the activity in the system to be direct voting, wheras Liquid Democracy is premised on using Delegates.

Fascinating stuff, and very encouraging to see, and learn from, other experiements in this space.

Follow fashion

Q. Will we allow proxy agents to programmed to follow the guidance of other Citizen/agents? We could have millions of agents all being programmed to follow the lead of a single Citizen/agent. Is that a better or worse scenario that what currently exists?

Abuse

Q. Is it possible for a system to be so open and transparent that it’s susceptible to abuse from others?
