Internet enabled a new kind of democratic system to appear. One could have thought that people would simply vote as they do when they are away, using postal vote, but none of this happened. The democratic system that emerged gave people the freedom to create content over the internet.

Thanks to new technological means, « pronétaires » can compete with « info-capitalists » when it comes to creating information.
