We’ve Had The Rise Of Digital Politics

What does all this mean? The big challenge and opportunity is this: digital politics is not just an opportunity to win power, but to wield power better. The digital world has become a key battleground during every political campaign; central to each Party’s strategy in how to raise volunteers, win votes, frame issues, and get money. That same culture of innovation, the daring and restless experimentation that have happened in the technologies that power digital campaigning, and in the campaigns that use them, also need to be applied to the basic democratic system itself. Now is the time to seriously contemplate using technology to transform democracy.
