About this Seminar:
President Obama's first executive action was the Open Government Memorandum calling for more transparent, participatory, and collaborative government. It is likely that one of the longest lasting effects of the current administration will be how much it changed the culture of Washington by opening government data and pioneering innovations in policymaking.

Beth Noveck is enacting these changes as the United States deputy chief technology officer. She leads the President's Open Government Initiative in the White House. On leave as law professor at New York Law School and a visiting professor of communication at Stanford University, she lectures on intellectual property, innovation and technology law. She is also the Founder of the State of Play conferences.

Noveck just released her latest book Wiki Government: How Technology Can Make Government Better, Democracy Stronger, and Citizens More Powerful.

Part of The Long Now Foundation's monthly series, the Seminars About Long-term Thinking hosted by Stewart Brand.
