Iceland is crowdsourcing the drafting of its new constitution, using a web-site and social media to allow Icelanders to see--and comment on--the emerging and evolving text. Here's an explanation, courtesy of CNN:
Iceland's current Constitution was written in 1944, when it gained independence from Denmark. The effort to rewrite it comes in the wake of the country's bank collapse.
The Constitutional Council posted the web-site for the project here, but, alas, it's in Icelandic.
