Craigslist.org Founder Hypes Government Transformation

Craigslist.org Founder Hypes Government Transformation

Craig Newmark, best known for being the founder of the Craigslist website, is working hard to get the word out on Gov2.0. Last week in FedScoop, he really laid out how technology is improving our American democracy.

“Overall, what we’re talking about is reinventing government from the bottom up, where web workers and ordinary citizens engage via the Net in large scale online grassroots democracy…. Our Founders created a flawed representative democracy, but with improvements it serves us well. However, we’re complementing that system via the Net with grassroots efforts which will create new checks and balances and accountability.
As stated in his article, Mr. Newmark hopes to help accelerate this progress by laying out national goals and enumerating specific actions for our elected and appointed leaders. I urge you to read his post and take his point of view to heart.
“This is what the new democracy is about- building upon existing structures with serious engagement from the public, and from genuinely dedicated public servants.”
