Digital Disruption: Lessons for Government

From Google's Eric Schmidt (publicly available in Foreign Affairs until 12/19/2010):
For the world's most powerful states, the rise of the interconnected estate will create new opportunities for growth and development, as well as huge challenges to established ways of governing. Connection technologies will carve out spaces for democracy as well as autocracy and empower individuals for both good and ill. States will vie to control the impact of technologies on their political and economic power.
Overall, an excellent treatise on how government can deal with the growing empowerment of individuals and networks.
