Taking back the Net

Tech savvy entrepreneurs take back the network during the Occupy New York movement. They had developed a software / hardware solution to wirelessly network and spread information.

It seems like a very obvious next step for the makers that they develop a portable polling station to improve the accessibility of local voting on issues for instance in an area of a city. Imagine if at the general assembly demonstrators would have been allowed to vote via a server, it would be ingenious and empowering at the same time, minimizing the headache of direct-democracy and making decisions on the spot.
