Democracy - an operating system for the people

This presentation serves as a high level theoretical introduction to the subject of democracy and digital media. The presentation takes a look at the idea of democracy and how it works in modern society. It then progresses to introduce a thesis about democracy being an operating system for the people. Building on this thesis, it aims to reveal seven criteria for democratic services. Towards the end, the presentation approaches a conceptual framework for a solution to the problems identified earlier.

This talk was originally presented in Norwegian at the Yggdrasil Conference for 2008. It has also been presented at various other occasions. The slides have been translated from Norwegian to English.
