Digital Democracy (For Real)
 / 

This is actually surprising (and heartening) to me:

For the first time, more than a half the country’s voting-age population used the Internet to get political news or get involved in the political process in 2008.

And remember, this kind of change is totally nonlinear — so the internet is just going to get more important, faster and faster, to politics and democracy.

The WaPo’s Jose Antonio Vargas has carved out a pretty excellent beat around this stuff, by the way. He’s the one to watch if you’re interested in the intersection of democracy and technology.
