Re: <nettime> <incom> Fwd: www.theglobalvote.org

This is an interesting case. Surely it's not democratic, little global
but innovative, yes, I like the idea.

However the required questions for signing up are ridiculous and I
personally wouldn't send in such information. Or maybe I'm being too
critical: you do can choose whether to send in picture or not ;)

I hope to see similar but more sane system on safe platform and
underlying orgs before this gets too popular.
