Lots of people in this thread are confused about the difference between 'democratic socialism'and 'social democracy'.
Today, democratic socialism is a fuzzy word and an umbrella term. Orthodox socialist terminology however, is simply that "democratic socialism" is a socialist society governed by means of direct democracy. Democratic socialists (such as George Orwell, Leon Trotsky, Dolores Ibárruri) are almost always revolutionary socialists.
Social democracy on the other hand is very concretely defined, very different, and rarely advocating direct democracy. Social democracy is the belief that socialist society (of any nature) should be achieved by legally reforming the current system.
Democratic socialists can be social democrats (weird wording; not sure what these folks like to be called), but most people who identify as democratic socialists aren't.anarcho-syndicalism, but also includes any leftist ideologies that argue for limited and decentralized government. All forms of anarchism, Luxemburgism, communalism, and anything else that fits under advocating decentralized limited government (libertarian) & advocating a socio-economic system wherein the workers control the means of production (socialism) is 'libertarian socialism'.

"Fermat unveils distributed governance model"
Fermat today released its distributed governance system which features a Dash-inspired embedded voting system that also includes community-cancellable contracts.
Launched one year ago, Fermat’s infrastructure includes an open social graph, direct access to people, and device-to-device communication. Also known as the Internet of People, it reduces transaction costs through intermediary elimination.
“Fermat’s graphchain technology enables both a global mapping of everybody with verified proof of how they are related, and also people-to-people and company-to-people interactions without going through intermediaries,” founder Luis Molina said. “In order to achieve this as a decentralized open source project we need a sound distributed governance system, one which includes Contribution Contracts.”

Blockchain is a comprehensive technology that has the tremendous potential and power to disrupt most industries over the coming years and change radically our perception and roles that business, state, government, economic development and science play in human life.
Decentralization and P2P (peer-to-peer) governance systems can help define a new path for the progress of humanity.
The blockchain is already on its way to becoming the 5th computing paradigm comparable by impact to mainframes, PCs, the Internet, and mobile/social networking.
The time for the big change in this world has come and it needs input from as many community members as possible.

"A platform cooperative, or platform co-op, is a cooperatively-owned, democratically-governed business that uses a protocol, website or mobile app to facilitate the sale of goods and services. Platform cooperatives are an alternative to venture capital funded platforms insofar as they are owned and governed by those who depend on them most—workers, users, and other relevant stakeholders. Proponents of platform cooperativism claim that, by ensuring the financial and social value of a platform circulate among these participants, platform cooperatives will bring about a more equitable and fair digitally-mediated economy in contrast with the extractive models of corporate intermediaries. Platform cooperatives differ from traditional cooperatives not only due to their use of digital technologies, but also by their contribution to the commons for the purpose of fostering an equitable social and economic landscape."

PRIVACY AND DATA OWNERSHIP
To build living labs that produce these sort of dense, continuous measurements, new legal and software tools had to be developed in order to protect the rights and privacy of the people in these labs, to insure that they are fully informed about what is happening to their data, and that that they maintain the right to opt out at any time. These `big data’ solutions, originally developed for human subjects research, have played an important role as examples in government policy debates over personal privacy, and have helped to shape both the US Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights and the EU Data Protection acts.
- The approach taken is to give participants direct legal control over sharing personal data not only with researchers but also among themselves and with commercial and civic entities. The participants `own’ the data being collected, in the sense that they have legal rights of ownership, and can control where it goes. This has an interesting consequence for social and medical science: since dense data is being continuously collected into the users’ personal data stores, conducting a new experiment simply requires obtaining informed consent from the participants. The time and cost of recruiting new subjects and making new measurements is zero since the participants and their data already exist, and as a consequence both the cost and time required to conduct a new experiment is cut dramatically.
Who Owns The Data In A Data-Driven Society?
How do you get the data out of those silos? The first step is you have to figure out who owns that data. Does the telephone company own it, just because it happened to be collected while you were walking around with your phone? Maybe they have some right to use it. But what the discussions are among all the participants, including the telephone companies, is that you're the only one that has final disposal of it. They would have the ability to keep copies to offer services that you've requested, but you, the individual, have to have the final say.
Some situations are, of course, more complex. What about if the data is a transaction with a merchant? Well, they have a right to the data too. But by assigning rights of ownership to people (which is not exactly the same as legal ownership) what you do is you make it possible to break data out of the silos. You've turned it into a personal asset that can then be shared for value in return. You can make it a liquid asset that can be used to build government systems, social systems, or for-profit systems. That's the world we're moving towards.
Is there opposition to this? Surprisingly little. The incumbents in the Internet are probably the major opposition because (and I don't mean to pick on them) Facebook and Google grew up in a completely unregulated environment. It is natural for them to think that they have control over the data, but now they're slowly, slowly coming around to the idea that they're going to have to compromise on that.
However the people who have the most valuable data are the banks, the telephone companies, the medical companies, and they're very highly regulated industries. As a consequence they can't really leverage that data the way they'd like to unless they get buy-in from both the consumer and the regulators. The deal that they've been willing to cut is that they will give consumers control over their data in return for being able to make them offers about using their data.
That gets these companies out of the regulator's pocket. It gives them a white hat, because they explicitly asked you if you wanted to op in, and it lets them make money, which is what they desperately want. And it appears that if you treat people's data in this sort of responsible manner, people will willingly share their data. It is a win-win-win solution to the privacy problem, and it's the companies that grew up in an unregulated environment, or the companies that are in gray markets that are likely to dry up, that are most strongly opposed.
We are beginning to see is services that leverage personal data in this sort of respectful manner. Services such as really personal recommendations, identity certification without passwords, and personal public services for transportation, health, and so forth. All these areas are undergoing tectonic changes, and the more that we can use specific data about specific people, the better we can make the system work.
These dramatic improvements in societies' systems goes back to what I was saying earlier. Today societies' systems are built on big averages and indices, e.g., this class of people do this and this market's moving that way. But really, it's all made up of millions and millions of small interactions, and with Big Data we can get down and design things that really work for us on a personal level, rather than just being treated as another type A4 consumer.

- In backcasting, foresight participants propose a future event or situation and then work backward to construct a plausible causal chain leading from here to there. Backcasting is commonly used as a team-oriented brainstorming tool, often as part of a scenario-based foresight methodology. The technique had its origin in energy futures studies in the 1970s.
