Lawrence Lessig on ending corruption using ICT

ICT against corruption is an issue I’ve written on earlier, and it came as a surprise today that no less than Lawrence Lessig has set his mind on using ICT to combat corruption. “How will the Internet change the corruption of politics?” is one of the many questions Lessig answers and describes how the Internet and web, as a tools of participatory democracy, can make government more accountable and transparent.

Lessig’s vision is limited to the US, but there is no reason why the mechanisms and technologies he speaks about can be adopted and applied in other countries.
