With Scott Shafer, Host of KQED’s The California Report Lieutenant Governor and former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom discusses how ordinary citizens can use new digital tools to dissolve political gridlock and transform American democracy. In his first book, Citizenville: How to Take the Town Square Digital and Reinvent Government, Newsom argues that, just as the post office and the highway system channel both personal and private enterprises, digital government can be used to share information, needs and concerns, and help an enlightened citizenry collaborate.
