The title of Lawrence Lessig's recent essay in The New Republic, "Against Transparency: The perils of openness in government," is a bit of a misnomer. Lessig isn't unequivocally against openness and transparency in government. Instead, he says we shouldn't see transparency as "just a big simple blessing," or a silver bullet solution to political problems, and he makes the case for a more nuanced view.
Tomorrow, Nora will interview Lessig about openness, transparency, and government. Do you have a question for Lawrence Lessig? Leave it in the comments below.
