As we noted last month, the community at Reddit responded to the whole SOPA mess by deciding that they should collaborate to write their own piece of legislation that protects internet freedoms. The first draft of the Free Internet Act is now available as an open Google doc, where there are additional edits and comments going on as we speak.

I will admit that it's a DRAFT. I read quite a bit of statues in my job, and this thing isn't ready for Congress anytime soon. What I find fascinating is that it's a "living" piece of work. As I'm typing this, an unknown number of people are editing it in real-time.
If it were up to me, the draft phase would be for a specified amount of time. After the "free for all draft phase", the "community" would nominate and select a core group of the most qualified people to clean it up and make several revisions.
