The future of politics and socail activism

I linked to a post on Grown Up Digital the other day that talked about the political changes likely to come from the Net Generation.

LittleSis, with the tagline “Profiling the powers that be” is one such example here today. Grown Up Digital » Profiling the powers that be on the un-Facebook

Think of it as a Wikipedia for people. The same people who brought us OpenCongress.org and FedSpending.org have now created a site for the creation, editing and updating of profiles of famous individuals. The profiles can also be interconnected to show the real world business, government, organizational or donation related connections of the individuals.

Open source, public, live critiquing and organizating of public officials and personnas. The ramifications are profound.
