High-tech Civic Engagement

I am really enjoying the website Since Sliced Bread which offers a $100,000 award for the person with the most innoative idea to "strengthen our economy and improve the day-to-day lives of working men and women and their families." It's great to see that so many Americans have submitted what seem to be for the most part thoughtful ideas about creating a better future. Another sign that we Americans are really itching for improvement and for progressive policy, if also for a cool hundred thou (but who can blame us?).

I've got a pretty good candidate I can write up for that contest, stolen from my favorite sociologist. I actually think it can win if they have an open mind.
