I met Paul on the Internet when I was working in the US. Before coming back to Belgium I attended the “Global Forum on Direct Democracy” in august 2010 in California. I am working as a researcher in neuroscience at the UCL. I am also a member of the Belgian Pirates. I developed a platform for liquid democracy, which was used locally by the Brussels pirates. I am now working on web solutions for open, efficient and comprehensive political debate. The goal of this paper is to present some elements about democracy in order to start up discussion about our definition of “Democracy”. We will try to give a little historical background, some information about democracy today in the world and about the current projects we know that are attempting to move democracy forward.
