Overview

Based on interviews with more than five hundred leading politicians, researchers, technology industry CEOs and leaders, futurists, and front-line public employees, Government 2.0 journeys across America and overseas to demonstrate the promise and perils of this emerging world and offers a likely road map to its implementation. You'll hear from technology executives preparing for an onrushing future when, for many citizens, most government interactions could take place on private-sector websites; from bureaucrats like OSHA's Ed Stern, fighting to get their agencies to adopt expert systems technology; from William Bennett, whose virtual education company offers a glimpse into one possible future of American education; and from Florida governor Jeb Bush and former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani as they endeavor to overcome bureaucratic inertia to provide more open, efficient, and effective governments.
