Topic: internet based political system

Many years ago I read some books that I *thought you authored involving a representative political system where political council meetings were held online and voters could change their support from one politician to the other depending on which one represented their views for that particular issue. There were sentient apes in the population, but that's all I can remember. Did you author such a universe/world? If not, might you know who the author was?

Hmm! I don't believe I wrote that one. Might have been David Brin! Readers?

Yup, that was most likely Brin - Uplift Universe. How could someone confuse you with David?
