Yes... this was actually my last point - what is the role of the board? I know it's been discussed, but again, I have not seen any conclusion.

Just a note: in the Swiss system:
- an Initiative comes from the people to create a NEW law
- a Referendum also comes from the people to OPPOSE a law decided by the parliament/government (requires half the number of signatures for an Initiative)

I think that THIS is the right system (at any scale):
- elected people take decisions (as today in most democracies)
- all these decisions can be appealed by the people (referendum)
- proposals can come from the people as well (initiative)

And of course, IT and the web must be used as much as possible to enhance public involvement and debate, this is why I created Enitiatives (which to me, is the Swiss system pushed to its extreme). We'll get there one day, eventually. The only questions are
- when?
- who will do it?
