Abstract: The procedure that is currently employed to allocate time on telescopes ishorribly onerous on those unfortunate astronomers who serve on the committeesthat administer the process, and is in danger of complete collapse as thenumber of applications steadily increases. Here, an alternative is presented,whereby the task is distributed around the astronomical community, with asuitable mechanism design established to steer the outcome toward awarding thisprecious resource to those projects where there is a consensus across thecommunity that the science is most exciting and innovative.
