Threat Modeling 'App Democracy'[no description provided]
"Direct Republican Democracy?" is a fascinating post at Prawfsblog, a collective of law professors. In it, Michael T. Morley describes a candidate for Boulder City Council with a plan to vote "the way voters tell him," and discusses how that might not be really representative of what people want, and how it differs from (small-r) republican government. Worth a few moments of your time.
