Political predictions

These predictions come from an interview with Martin Gurri, author of The Revolt of the Public. Gurri is a former CIA analyst who predicted the effects of social media on politics. He predicts:

  1. Authority shifts to local decisionmakers. Because motives are clear at the local level.
  2. Bureaucracies get dismantled, improving service.
  3. Government adopts some of the abilities of online retail.

Like all predictions, it will be interesting to see if this comes true.
