ICT influence in politics

Recently I wrote an article (sorry it is in Dutch) where I put the current political situation in the Netherlands under threat of the development of social software. I believe that social software will have impact on and perhaps even change the way that politics are done. Although that article is mere a look into the future, even in the current political setting some ICT apllications already have their impact.

There is a site that follows the actions of political parties in the NL and compares it to what they promised prior to the elections. Find their site here. There is also a site that decides where your vote should go based on some answers that you provide to their questions. Look at this one to see what i mean.

Sorry again, these sites are in Dutch but there is also a site that helps to select a Presidential candidate in the USA. You can find that one here.
