  • digital productive system – information is free and cheap and knowledge is easy to transmit = cost no more an issue
  • but deliberation needs time to come together for deliberation, same to negotiation nut also these hurdels are vanishing
  • weclome to real time politics without gatekeeping agencies

  • biggest problem digital divide! as we also discussed with @andy_williamson
  • 1/3 doesn’t use 1/3 use it not regulary so tere is only 1/3 with which we could engage but only about 8% have the potential
