Is a Democracy for, of, and by consumers possible?

Jock Gill writes for Greater Democracy ,Is a Democracy for, of, and by consumers possible?:
"The revolution will be mobile, wireless and broadcast by the people. It will give people the power of choice as to what they watch and when, where and how they watch it. The idea of having to be in a special place, sitting in front of a large, immobile object, at a fixed time, with a limited menu of choices is already becoming quaint. Unless we choose it for our own personal and social reasons.

The question is whether people with this level of power of choice, owning tools to be their own radio and TV producers / broadcasters will rediscover the meaning of being a full citizen as well as a consumer?"
