How the Internet Can Support Government Transparency and Citizen Engagment Presentation – By Steven Clift at NewsOut.Org Conference – 2009

The other week, I spoke at the NewsOut conference in Boston on the intersection of e-democracy and e-journalism with a focus on how the Internet can be used to promote government transparency and public engagement in governance. I sent out a query asking people for examples on the Democracies Online Newswire, News-Online, the U.S. Democracy Online exchange, and to the Transparency Camp e-mail lists. Many of the examples I share demonstrate once again that the intelligence is in the network.
