Liquefying the Demos (by proxy)

“Citizen deliberative councils, participatory budgeting, the Occupy movement’s consensus decision making: These are all experiments in more participatory forms of democracy […] With the rise of the German Pirate Party (see NYT and NPR reports), so-called liquid democracy platforms for proxy voting (or delegated voting) are finally getting some real-world testing and development.” http://www.solvingforpattern.org/2012/10/02/proxy-voting-liquid-democracy/

“Adhocracy is a policy drafting and decision making software for distributed groups and open institutions.” https://github.com/liqd/adhocracy/

“Adhocracy is a structureless organization used to solve various problems. It is a type of organization that operates in opposite fashion to a bureaucracy. The term was first popularized in 1970 by Alvin Toffler, and has since become often used in the theory of management of organizations (particularly online organizations), further developed by academics such as Henry Mintzberg.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adhocracy
