Micah Sifry on NPR/Future Tense: Distributed Politics Online

Seconds ago.. on KALW 91.7 from SF! I missed the intro.. but it was a great interview about his new project, The Personal Democracy Forum and the idea of open source politics. The interviewer seemed taken with the idea that open source could be applied to something else besides software development. And Micah explained about the idea that distributed networks / communication and personal participation come together to shift politics in a compelling new way, and he's trying to harness some of that activitiy for the PDF. In other words: it's the community, stupid.

You can listen here online if you like.

Go Micah!
