Could this be the start of the era of net-driven participatory politics? Is
new media capable of inventing a new era of politics? Wikipedia founder Jimmy "Jimbo" Wales seems to think so, as he's just announced the opening of a wiki devoted to hot-button political topics such as gay marriage and environmental protection. The aim of the site is to be a central meeting ground for people on all sides of the political spectrum who think that it is time for politics to become more participatory, and more intelligent. “Together, we will start to work on educating and engaging the political campaigns about how to stop being broadcast politicians, and how to start being community and participatory politicians.” But will this non partisan effort really make politics smarter and able to engage people on a personal level? Will politicians hear? Or respond? That it very much up to YOU.
