Haaretz reports: ‘Amateur legislators with internet connections and good Portuguese are invited to draft Portugal a new constitution, as part of a new experiment encouraging Web users to edit the document as if it were a Wikipedia entry. . . . The initiative, called Constituicao 2.0, was announced last Saturday by the Institute for Portuguese Democracy, a Lisbon-based political, nonpartisan think tank that uses interactive activities to increase people’s involvement in government.’  The wiki itself is here.



Focus is on reviewing, analysing state hacks. Bits of code, procedures, whatever fits. The State was designed as a compromise between the rising aspirations of various groups and the monarchs. It was not designed for a wider, and definitely not for participatory, nor direct, democracy. Now we have the tools to do so. No need to start from scratch though: state hacking time.
