In 2014, Manicini founded a new political party, Partido de la Red (The Net Party), and an app to go with it, DemocracyOS, which is due to launch in March. The app will allow users to provide immediate reactions to issues on the political agenda. Mancini’s party received 22,000 votes in their first election back in October 2013 and expect that number to soar with the release of DemocracyOS. In her 2014 TED talk, Mancini said that her aim was to “transform noise and silence into signal and finally bring our democracies to the 21st century”.
