Tech, Privacy & Democracy
The past few years have demonstrated the power of technology to shape and influence public opinion and policy. Concurrently, there has been more scrutiny on information shared and how it is used, and what happens when personal data is breached.  How can technology be harnessed for good and what role does government play in either regulating or encouraging beneficial use?
