Software providing direct democracy on the Internet.
parlement is a threaded forum and a mailing list, and also a voting system where every one can propose, vote, or delegate their vote (a delegation being for one post/mail/poll and its sub-threads). This results in a mix of Direct and Participative Democracy, a Web board where any sort of structured content can be democratically written: laws, constitutions, newspapers, petitions, even blogs. Trust can be built through: PGP signatures so that data can not be tampered with, P2P servers where the posts/email messages/polls are replicated, and electoral lists to compute the results.
