Recap: Rewiring Government for Openness, Connection, and Choice, Featuring Susan Crawford and Beth Noveck (Video)



Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

In this era of big data and social networks, we have an opportunity to reinvent our systems; connecting citizens and leaders to create a more agile governance.

Currently, however, government and large companies are holding access to information and the natural freedom that it provides as a privilege for those that can afford it, not a public utility, which comes at a sacrifice to our global competitive advantage. Replacing regulations with more innovative alternatives to encourage entrepreneurship, protect citizens, and allowing for economic growth will be key to our futures.

Professors Susan Crawford, author of Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age, and Beth Noveck, author of Wiki Government: How Technology Can Make Government Better, Democracy Stronger and Citizens More Powerful, have both worked in the White House under President Obama and are some of the foremost experts on how governments should adapt to a 21st century world.

Susan and Beth joined us at Ideas Connected for SMW NYC to share specific cases on how government can adapt and then together address the forces shaping our world, and what we can do to change it for the better.
