Crowdsourcing Legislation
After a very brief introduction to Open Government, in this talk, Anke Domscheit-Berg will present how citizens can use mass collaboration in bottom up approaches with the power of the internet to 1) monitor legal changes and act upon unwanted ones, 2) prevent laws they don't want to have, up to 3) creating laws exactly how they want them to be. She will highlight the need to transparency on law and law making processes and show tools which help create transparency where governments don't provide such. A deepdive will cover the innovative and most democratic process of crowdsourcing Icelands new constitution, involving social media tools such as twitter and facebook but also offline collaboration with an unprecedent number of people. Anke Domscheit-Berg will show in her talk how mass collaboration and more direct democracy in law making will improve core values of open government: transparency and participation, not just for the law making process but for all ways in which governments function.

Other cases covered include e.g. Transparency Law Hamburg, Law on Security and Order Sachsen Anhalt, ACTA/SOPA/PIPA,CISPA, Global Warming Act (CA).
