Networked Economic DemocracyJeff Jarvis at Buzzmachine posts an important piece about the way Amazon is raising money (LOTS OF IT VERY FAST) for the tsunami relief efforts. It's a very important story. He links to the Washington Post coverage on this idea.
I think we are seeing seismic shifts in how we create a world and support and sustain others through the network. I wonder if this is not the beginning of a form of "networked economic democracy" something I've been thinking about and talking about with other bloggers. This stuff crosses borders, redraws borders, changes allies and alliances. It's a transcendent form of democracy. It makes gun-toting democracy proselytizers looks pretty lame.
