GetDemocracy is the distribution website for the Democracy Player, which is basically a specialized browser for downloading (via Bittorrent) and viewing online videos, video blogs, video RSS feeds, etc. It’s part of a grand scheme by the Participatory Culture Foundation to provide tools for free and open media sharing over the Net. All their various projects are GPL’d, and they’re using a lot of cool stuff…the Mozilla XUL-Runner platform, Bittorent, VLC and Xine, and Python!

The player is really sharp, I have to admit. I may have to break down and get another big-ass drive for all this stuff! Check it out…pretty cool.
