Votorola - "...an experimental technology for the public guidance of electoral systems, exec­u­tive of­fices, legis­latures, and other decision sys­tems. Unique­ly it combines the de­vices of re­combin­ant text, trans­i­tive voting, and vote pipes to build a max­imum of person­al freedom into its facil­i­ties. The main facil­i­ties are tree-form, de­cision guide­ways. Voto­rol­a deploys the leaf­ward edges of these in sup­port of the pub­lic sphere, where they pro­vide a pur­pose and out­let for ration­al dis­course."
