The quest for the Digital Plexus

Bear with me on this one, because it's a critical idea whose time has most definitely come: Some clever software could change the world as we know it. We don't need banks to use money, or make transactions. We don't need overpaid MPs and elitist Lords to make democratic decisions. We don't need middle-men to pile on margins to trade goods. We don't need corporations to bring us news or media. All we need are networks of trust. Ideally we need a self-regulating, international network, built on openness and transparency which rewards co-operation and utilises a combination of factors to assess reputation and trust.
