Smart Citizens, Smarter State – The Technologies of Expertise and the Future of Governing, Beth Simone Noveck, 2015
Why does government make such clumsy use of technology? Why is government so closed to participation by citizens, including those who are skilled in technology? What can be improved and how?
This book discusses these questions. People who are interested in better government will find the book valuable and inspiring, though it has an academic style and reading it will require concentration and effort.
The author is a co-founder of thegovlab.org and a TED speaker on open government.
