Personal democracy is an oxymoron

While in Rome, the Aspen Institute in Rome is organizing a conference about democracy and the internet, in New York it is held the Personal Democracy Forum 2012. It is a bizarre notion, sort of an oxymoron. A democracy, by definition, is about being together, which is hardly a personal thing to do. But the reality is much more interesting. It is focused on the idea that digital technologies can improve the way we decide democratically. Stefano Rodotà has said some very wise things about the matter.
