Key moments

Society needs to be heard; society needs for government authorities to be understandable and predictable, and to provide answers to those questions that people today are asking.
Herman Gref
The solution is really simple. The solution is transparency.
Tim Kelsey
We probably do need to see an adjustment by the Government toward 21st century standards.
Andrei Shleifer
One of the things that crowdsourcing is allowing us to do with these kinds of new technologies is what I would call re-regulation. In other words, getting rid of and reducing red tape, but still allowing us to protect consumers.
Beth Noveck
Crowdsourcing does not mean a crowd; rather, it’s two mechanisms that underlie new technologies. The first is filtering of information noise, meaning the technology of extracting gold nuggets from gold-bearing sand, while the second is selection of people.
