“There’s just no excuse for our government to remain in the last century”

I know exactly how New York's junior US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand feels when she makes that statement. Earlier today, I watched her talk (via the livestream taken during the first day of PdF 2011 aka Personal Democracy Forum 2011) about how to change politics from the inside out - and you can watch her too:

It's not long and she gives numerous examples, big and small, of how government can and why it should open up.

If you prefer, you can read about her presentation here, "A story about data: Kirsten Gillibrand on the right way for government officials to expose themselves online."
