All of you fortunate enough to be in New York on Monday July 20th, here’s an event that’s not to be missed. The Markle Foundation is hosting a book presentation by Beth Noveck, Deputy CTO for open government and leads President Obama’s Open Government Initiative. Beth will be speaking about her new book, Wiki Government: How Technology Can Make Government Better Democracy Stronger, and Citizens More Powerful.
