About

Governing.Digital is a clearinghouse for trustworthy reporting, research, and analysis about digital governance for governments, technology companies, nonprofits, journalists, and the public.

It was created by Alexander B. Howard, as part of the Digital Democracy Project at the Demand Progress Education Fund, a nonprofit entity sponsored by the New Venture Fund which advocates for Internet freedom, human and civil rights, anti-corruption, democracy and open government.

Our mission is to embed democratic values into the digital governance policies and statutes of nation states and the private corporations that operate the public squares of the 21st century.

In service of that goal, we bring good ideas in digital democracy to light, document who’s making a difference, and help codify what’s working to achieve maximum positive public impact, educating the public, press, and lawmakers on how and where disruptive technologies strengthen societies instead of dividing them.
