Wiki and democracy

July 3, 2007

What if every citizen could participate on editing and recreating the national Constitution? This was the starting point for Assembléia Constitwiki project, led by Frederick van Amstel. He added the full text of Brazilian Constitution from 1988 to a wiki and invited everyone to edit it freely. In the end of the year, the revised text will be presented to Congress.

 I’m very curious about the outcome of this project. I think it’s brilliant, although I believe it might need some moderation depending on the number of participants.
