This talk, given at TEDx­Can­ber­ra­Wo­men 2013, raises issues of digit­al cit­izen­ship, data own­er­ship, open gov­ern­ment and pub­lic-gov­ern­ment col­lab­or­a­tion as drivers for a more open soci­ety.


Pia Waugh is an open gov­ern­ment and open data advoc­ate, work­ing to enable great­er trans­par­ency, demo­crat­ic engage­ment, cit­izen-cent­ric design, and prag­mat­ic innov­a­tion in the pub­lic sec­tor and bey­ond. She believes that tech cul­ture has a huge role to play in achiev­ing bet­ter poli­cy plan­ning, out­comes, pub­lic engage­ment and a bet­ter pub­lic ser­vice.
