Joe Trippi – Politics and the Internet

Greece is at a turning point. For decades the Goliath forces in politics and government have failed to tackle the major problems facing Greece. As a result, the people of Greece have understandably lost trust in those institutions.

The top will not solve this problem: Parties have to trust the people before the people will ever trust the parties. A successful political party will use technology to empower their supporters to arm an Army of Davids to take back Greek politics from the failed Goliath institutions.
