Web 2.0 and Mitt Romney

What Mitt Romney is doing with Jumpcut is phenomenal and started me thinking of how we might present applications in the future by letting citizens create their own. If we could just provide the building blocks with services that can be connected and customized in whatever way the user wanted to put them together could be extremely powerful. For example, what if rather than continually searching for a campground, the service could be linked (along with other services, public or private) to the users calendar along with preferences and when there was availability that matched between the users calendar and availability a hold is put on for a limited time when the citizen could confirm. What if services and applications could be pieced together for a citizen the same way video clips, text, and audio are remixed in Jumpcut? I don't know if this is the best example of what I'm trying to portray, but I think there are probably countless others.
