Superstructure Description: 
Making the absentee ballot an everyday experience
Superstructure Idea: 

How does a displaced person make themselves heard in a strange society?A rook parliament is an in-cloud forum that allows everyone to squabble over the bones of an initiative, tear at its flesh, reform it, and, finally, lend it the popular support  needed to successfully lobby for changes in legislation. Seeking to avoid the 'trials by twitter' character blow-ups and assassinations that have dogged other vox populi initiatives, speakers in a rook parliament will have a clearly demonstrated reputation   In giving the displaced a voice, it may be that rook parliaments give everyone a voice, and not just once every 3-4 years.

Superstructure Needs: 

Diplomats and negotiators will be need to allay fears that traditional arms of government may feel about being usurped.

Software developers and security analysts needed for service implementation.

(And, of course, beefeaters!)

Superstructure Memembership: 

How do we demonstrate the reputation of a speaker? (By this I mean how can a newcomer quickly establish who is worth listening to, and who isn't?)

How do we provide trusted online voting services?
