Make Your Laws (makeyourlaws.org) is an open source, nonprofit, practical project that aims to replace all existing legislatures with online liquid democracies. Our aim is simple: to let you make your laws.
This talk includes background on the concepts of direct, representative, and liquid democracies; the tradeoffs inherent in different types of government; interesting problems for online voting and policy authorship; discussion of some legal context (e.g. electronic signatures and the democratized use of Super PACs); a practical road map to gaining full control over your legislature; updates on our activity in the 2012 US election and with the FEC; and extended Q&A.
