Les Gentils Virus pour la Démocratie reddit Reddit: A Beginner's Guide Update: This post was updated October 2013 to reflect current statistics and tools. To the uninitiated, Reddit looks like a mess — text links, comment threads, points, upvotes, downvotes. At best, posts seem contextless — at worst, totally random. But spend some quality time with "The Front Page of the Internet," and you'll find it's an essential resource, a self-correcting marketplace of ideas that's nearly impervious to marketers.

reddit: the front page of the internet Hackons la Constitution Française Il y a quelques mois, j'ai extrait la constitution française en vigueur (du 4 octobre 1958) au format Wiki et je l'ai publiée sur PenFlip : Penflip est une plateforme de rédaction collaborative, (comme un Wiki), qui permet a tout le monde de commenter et de proposer des changements (amendements) sur un document. La version originale est conservée et on peut ainsi étudier et discuter chaque version individuellement. La constitution est le texte fondateur de notre nation. Loin d'être un texte obsolète ou figé, la constitution est vivante : En lisant ce qu'elle contient et ne contient pas, nous pouvons y comprendre notre impuissance politique (celle du peuple), et la défiance (peur?)
