Leasing Interactive Democracy to Other Organisations

Other organisations, public institutions or businesses, could conceivably want to poll their members. They may want to set up their own ID system but the government may consider renting out the national system if it has enough capacity. The ID infrastructure may be viewed in the same way as we consider National Grid or the rail infrastructure today.

The results of using ID for these purposes would be considered private and the security of the polls may carry the full weight of the law.

For some interesting insight into radical organisation structures in business see "Maverick" by Ricardo Semler.
