Wiki Government author Beth Noveck’s March 4 seminar at The Long Now Foundation can now be viewed at FORA.tv. A full transcript of her remarks is also available. Noveck, who serves as deputy chief technology officer for open government in the Office of Science and Technology Policy, was recently chosen as one of the “Federal 100” by Federal Computer Week. In her Long Now seminar, she discusses the history of the patent system, the genesis of Peer-to-Patent, the Obama administration’s Open Government initiative, and more broadly, the implications of new technology for thinking about democracy. She also responds to questions on such topics as transparency and secrecy in government.
