Global Voting System. Ambitious. Provocative. And academic until systemic issues of integrity and trustworthiness in digital voting are properly addressed.

That noted, the GVS is a somewhat intriguing idea: A worldwide digital network designed with the goal of giving each individual a way to voice their opinion, and thereby bring a global populist democracy. Theoretically running on existing infrastructure (e.g., the Internet), the GVS could give anyone (with access to the distributed online system) a way to be heard on issues that affect them locally, regionally, nationally and globally.

Its definitely academically engaging, and definitely forward-thinking. I’ll leave it at that.
