In 2011 Iceland became the first nation to crowdsource the redrafting of its constitution. It invited its citizens, who are among the most web-literate in the world, to contribute comments and suggestions to the document via its own website or through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr. The measure sought to restore people’s faith in democratic processes, in the wake of the financial crisis that saw the collapse of the country’s banks and government.
