ICYMI: Susan Crawford on how government can use the Internet and data for good
Susan Crawford, Professor of Law at Harvard Law School and a co-director of the Berkman Klein Center (BKC), talked Internet infrastructure and open government data and the ways municipalities can use them to improve communities at a recent BKC event. It's a fascinating discussion about the Responsive Communities Initiative, an effort which melds economic development, social justice, and civil liberties. And, Crawford acknowledges some of the work DC government has done to enable community ratings of government agencies and services.
