Liquid Democracy: True Democracy for the 21st Century

my notes ( ? )

Voters can either vote directly on issues, or they can delegate their voting power to delegates (i.e. representatives) who vote on their behalf. Delegation can be domain specific, which means that voters can delegate their voting power to different experts in different domains...
If trust is broken ... the voter can simply revoke the delegation ... this notion of provisional trust is important to create a sense of responsibility and accountability for delegates... delegates can even delegate other delegates to vote on their behalf and all the previous voters (who themselves have delegated their vote) linked in the chain... Pirate Parties across Europe are using software like LiquidFeedback (http://liquidfeedback.org/) for certain decisions and even elections.
