This presentation serves as a high level theoretical introduction to the subject of democracy and digital media. The presentation takes a look at the idea of democracy and how it works in modern society. It then progresses to introduce a thesis about democracy being an operating system for the people. Building on this thesis, it aims to reveal seven criteria for democratic services. Towards the end, the presentation approaches a conceptual framework for a solution to the problems identified earlier.
