Could crowdsourced government really work?  Finland aims to find out:

The 'Open Ministry' platform (available on GitHub) is about to go live in Finland (Oct 1).  The goal is to facilitate greater participation in government. Essentially any citizen who can get 50,000 'upvotes' for a proposed law can require the Eduskunta (Finnish Parliament) to vote on the proposal.

Wow! So true!
If anything should ever get a spot on What's Hot, it's this video.  
It made me laugh and cry at the same time.  It made me think of the teachers I know who have to pay $45 per year to use the microwave and another $45 to use the fridge.  It made me think of my past teachers and the way they shaped my values, my work ethic, my passions, and my sense of empathy.  It made me think, too, that this is an election year and it was my teachers who made me understand why voting is more than a privilege, it is a responsibility.

Say thank you to a teacher today.  Share this video with 'em, too.

(Thank you to +Meilani MacDonald, who posted this in my Stream today.)
