Nothing in this universe is truly artificial, but rather the
outcome of natural processes. So rather than concentrating on building
"artificial intelligence" should we instead concentrate on "automatic
So, automenta = automatic mind, or automatic
The word "automata" from computer science means:
"A moving mechanical device made in imitation of a human being." or
"A machine that performs a function according to a predetermined set of coded instructions."
"Machinamentum (which I believe means engine in Latin) but after some tweaking and revisions ended up with Automenta. It seemed to convey a feeling of automatic momentum and automatic thinking at the same time..." --Jack Vaulhartz
Gov’t Report: CNN, Huffington Post listed as ‘external stakeholders’ in NRC, alongside nuclear industry and pro-nuclear blogs — Both outlets help NRC to increase online influence, as CNN produces pro-nuclear infomercial
External Stakeholders (Nuclear Industry) [...] Senior Manager for Social — Media, Nuclear Energy Institute [...]

Excerpts from the evaluation:
As part of the press, I have to be able to quickly communicate a lot of technical information into something our readers will grasp. But it helps if NRC had strong info graphics or a section that provided a breakdown of technical info so I can understand the translation from its source. — Huffington Post
NRC‘s materials are very basic and not very viral. Other agencies do a better job of including information graphics, photos, even clickable links. There‘s no extra. It‘s not influential. — Managing Editor, Huffington Post
One producer from Cable News Network (CNN) suggested that what was currently offered on Flickr does not compel him to return and urged NRC to provide more content that did not involve people in a conference room or of the chairperson speaking from a podium.

this makes a lot of sense. a positive/negative voting system. it could be a lot of fun. would generate lots of interesting statistics.
we can extend open-source democratic voting software to work in the way you describe. (better than that Diebold vote fraud garbage).
as for "regular people" being put in charge, i suggest a software engineer should be president. think about it.. what isnt software? DNA, language, computer programs, law... it's all just code that governs the manipulation of matter and energy. so a programmer ought to be in charge of this biosphere that supports all of us biocomputers.
