Crowdsourcing = true democracy

Mashable: asking a pool of people to create something can be faster, cheaper, and more accurate than putting a project in the hands of individuals. These five start-ups are doing just that by using crowdsourcing in creative ways.

SHOOT: To me the most obvious use of crowdsourcing is getting people to vote on a variety of issues. Thus we no longer need parliaments or representatives, we can vote for what we want when we want.
