Recorded at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, Harvard University, March 19, 2012. The historic events of the last year, from Egypt to #Occupy to the SOPA debate, have breathed new life into the idea of open government fueled by technology. At the same time, a new spectre of new cutting edge surveillance states has arisen, where digital autocracies apply filtering, propaganda and tracking technologies to suppress speech, distort public opinion and capture or kill dissidents and protestors. In this talk on the power of platforms, Alexander B. Howard â€” the Government 2.0 Washington Correspondent for O'Reilly Media â€” talks about where the principles and technologies that built the Internet and World Wide Web are being integrated into government and society Ã¢â‚¬â€? and by whom. http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/interactive/events/luncheon/2012/03/howardmoreless
