A post from Joi Ito's wiki-wiki emergent democracy page, which is itself very interesting. Bayle Shanks mentions Liquid Democrcy:
Another option is LiquidDemocracy . In LiquidDemocracy , everyone does indeed get to vote on every issue. But you can give your vote to a proxy. AND, they can give your vote to their proxy. So, say you don't know much about the space program -- you give your votes on things relating to the space program to someone who has similar political views to you but who knows more about the space program (and they can pass the vote on if they choose).

It seems to me that LiquidDemocracy solves the "ordinary people have no time to learn about every issue" problem.

One way to look at LiquidDemocracy is as representative democracy, but much more fine-grained; you don't have to elect just one guy to represent you on every issue, you can have different specialists for different issues. Second, there is no GerryMandering (at least, not in the process of choosing representatives); your single vote empowers your chosen representative a little bit; you don't have to get more than 50% of the people in your area to vote for the same guy before there is any effect.

More on the idea here (these pages are a bit murky, though; but there are some good "scenarios" in LiquidDemocracyVotingSystem ):

Veery interesting. I like it.

16 May 2003 @ 13:11 by lugon @80.58.19.109 : "quality" votes
In general, I guess "ignorants" (I mean "ignorant" as a variable local to the subject) shouldn't vote. You can be an "ignorant" if the vote is about something local to where I live - you just can't know what things are like around here! But if you do bother to find out, maybe you could vote?

Perhaps a way to filter "ignorants" would be to ask 5 factual multiple-choice questions before collecting the vote on a particular subject.

At least, you'd be able to collect some nice statistics about what people know - stratified by vote.

You could also collect their opinions: how many vote "yes" and also feel that the color of your hair is ugly, etc.

You could also have "weights": if you are more knowledgable, then your vote simply counts more. Or perhaps not - no: that's not what I'd intend. DataHeads are not necessarily more important. My intention would be just to filter out those who don't know what they are voting about.

Well, we could try, perhaps ...

come hai detto tu Fabrizio che le donne occidentali vadano a cercare sesso in quei paesi è un po’ come se gli eschimesi prendessero l&7;12#8aereo per andare a comprare il ghiaccio in Arabia Saudita.
