I think that if the algorithm actually works, and it can be demonstrated that it is possible to get a good reading of the voice of humanity, or, to start with, just the voice of any small group - then there will be no need for marketing it. In other words, if the problem is solved well enough, it will be abundantly obvious to those who look closely enough, and the news will spread quickly.
So, I think the hard problem to solve is HOW to get a sufficiently good reading of the collective voice. I don't think that the rating and sorting of messages in itself is quite enough.

I was just searching for myself (Trigahertz) on Google, and this page came up. I was surprised to find my poem here. Very cool.

A quick thought to add to ming's comment above.
Agreed that rating and sorting of messages in itself is not quite enough. But there might be a system whereby one can make up one's mind on an issue and "take a position" that somehow is integrated into the system and filters up, any time that particular issue comes up for discussion or is implicated in solving a particular problem. I am thinking of a set of data attached to a person, a "character" that forms through participation in discussions, votes, surveys, and leaves a permanent trace of the will of each given individual.

Online software is being developed by Carnegie-Mellon to enable "deliberative polling" -- the idea being for people to become educated about an issue before being polled about it. Prof. James Fishkin of Stanford is the one who has developed the concept. Here is a http://www.cmu.edu/PR/releases03/031217_townhall.html on it.
From the article linked:"Technology and the Internet will undoubtedly change the way citizens organize and engage in politics in the near future," said InSITeS Executive Director Ronald Gdovic. "The software coming out of InSITeS and CAAE has the potential to change the way people participate in their government. Technology is poised to help us overcome the barrier of distance to have similar interactive and informed dialogue about national policy."
