ReCivilization, Part 5: Rebooting the Public Square

ReCivilization with Don Tapscott

ReCivilization with Don Tapscott


ReCivilization airs on Ideas on July 13, 20, 27, August 3 and 10.

In the finale episode, Don Tapscott takes us into the public square to look at how governments must re-engage with citizens. This means leaving behind the traditional model of command and control and into moving into an era of openness and transparency. Citizens need accessible data so they can participate fully in designing effective policy and public services. It also means protecting the web as a public space.

Guests on the program:

Thomas Kalil, Deputy Director for Policy, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy

Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google, Inc.

Mitchell Baker, Chairperson of the Mozilla Foundation, makers of the Firefox web browser

Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web
