Google Docs & The Icelandic Constitution

September 10, 2019

So I’m Thorvaldur Gylfason, professor of economics
at the University of Iceland. I was one of the 25 members of the Constitutional Assembly
that drafted a post-crash constitution for Iceland, and we were delighted to use Google
Docs in order to make our work easier. On many occasions, we saved time and energy by
doing the drafting together–not necessarily sitting in the same room, it could be in different
places, using Google Docs. I’m convinced that our constitution is a better document than
it would have been without these technological advantages.
