Google Moderator : A small glipse of the future?

Its not quite the semantic-reasoning system allowing logical deducations by humans on mass that I one day picture will lead this world...
..but it is a step towards it;

http://moderator.appspot.com/#e%3D

Its a good application to suggest and vote for questions and ideas.
Its very very simple, but packed with a lot of promise.

The most missing feature is the idea of having points/counterpoints, but a few people have already suggested that, so I know I'm not alone.

Theres a current topic from google where people can suggest features for thier mobile phone platform, Android;

http://moderator.appspot.com/#e%253D...lNlcmllcxj4AQw

Theres one were google engineers answer the most voted for questions;
http://moderator.appspot.com/#e%253D...D0%252Bs%253D1

But this is just the tip of the iceburg;
For instance, heres a set I started suggesting preposals for laws;

http://moderator.appspot.com/#e%253D...NlcmllcxiOsgEM

People can suggest a law or vote for/against existing laws ideas.

Is it the future of democracy? You Decide!

Lol... nha it's to easy to fraud. People now can for example buy "diggs". Also of cause most people don't have or use a computer it wouldn't be representing those.
But yeah nice idea as far as I can see.

I'm bumping this thread because I just spotted its already being used for politics

http://change.gov/page/content/openf...tions20081229/

Barack Odama administration seems to be using it to field questions!

There's been 1.5 million votes already, and it seems people are making it quite clear how they feel about banks, laws introduced to combat terrorism and the lack of universal healthcare.

It remains to be scene if any of these questions will be answered, of course, but it seems fantastic its being used already, and the very least it keeps the president informed of what's on the public's mind.

For now maybe, all you need is a google account per-vote.
But as its used more there's ways to reduced fraud and minimise its effects when it does happen.


(incidently, my solve a world problem google mod is here ; http://moderator.appspot.com/#15/e=aa70&t=a186 )
