Internet Democracy

I think that now it would be technologically possible for everyone to vote on whatever proposal is discussed in the parliament. Of course, people don’t have time to do deal with every proposal, so I think everyone should have the right to forfeit their vote to a representative of their choice. This is quite similar to what is happening now, but I would leave the right for everyone to cast their vote differently from their representative whenever they want to. Or maybe they could choose different representatives for different topics (but in this case a body would be needed which decides which proposals are about which topic). Or they could choose subrepresentatives, who background read only some of the proposals, and in those might vote differently from¬†their superrepresentative. And how people would choose their representatives? I guess some algorithm, like the one in Pandora, could recommend them.
