More people can say more things to more people than ever in history. And that is still growing enormously. The contemporary internet and the tools that make it up give us an immense opportunity to reorganize almost any aspect of our own lives.

So if you can create an encyclopaedia with a million people who've never met but the quality is just as good as Britannica... what else could you create? There is this possibility of using these tools to do massive things which is completely unexplored at the moment. And we can work together in ways that ask a deeper question about the role of government.

Can we all govern?

There is a whole new model emerging where we become part of the government. I think we've got the technology that any vote that's in parliament could be offered to the entire country.

This is a very profound change. I'm not talking about people lobbying or outside parties influencing government... I'm talking about unbundling and reconstituting what is a government.

The revolution doesn't happen when society adopts new tools... it happens when society adopts new behaviors.

This is only the first one and a half minutes of the video. You might want to check out the rest...
