Well, the part that is on your website was only a couple of minutes.

It seemed to be suggesting that countries be ruled by the whole public setting direction.

What I prefer is that we eliminate corruption from our current system.

I want to elect good people to go in, really figure stuff out and then do what is best for everybody else.  If we cannot take the time to make good voting choices just once every couple of years, how can we take the time to make good voting choices every day?

I think the idea is we replace passive voting for  management . not all of us just the ones who are naturally disposed to do so. The new technology  opens up doors of government to all who are disposed to govern  as apposed to the current system which is biased towards those in the current circle. it is not an overthrow approach to change rather a side step and continue forward. The documentary has already been viewed by governments all over the world.

You should be able to watch the whole documentary from the link i provided ,after the initial 4 minute intro you have the option to continue with parts 1 -6.

I could see some potential to create software where permaculture and other like minded organisations can link consumer to producer  and fill all the gaps in between and totally by pass super markets for food needs for example . Also something similar with education.
There is lots of oppurtunity for this co-operative technology.
       
If you have not watched the full documentary please do. It is all about solutions and in this sense resonates  with permaculture.

You said, "If permaculture wants to thrive it must embrace the technological revolution."  I put it to you, that permaculture is as popular as it is today because of technology.  Before the Internet the ideas of permaculture and natural farming were found in a few very obscure books that most people would never have found.  The Internet is giving the average person a voice and bringing people together.  We are no longer isolated unto the communities we live in.  The internet just made everyone neighbors.

I could not agree more.

And this is just the beginning , i guess my point here is to try and get some feedback as to how permaculture can position itself in the development  of this internet phenomenon.

A golden opportunity seems on the horizon but the niches will fill quickly as always.

Will permaculture penetrate the mainstream or will it  always be marginal ?

cheers
