How to Take the Town Square Digital and Reinvent Government

By integrating democratic government with cutting-edge American innovation, the lieutenant governor of California charts a bright future for open-source America.

Citizenville is the story of how ordinary citizens can use new digital tools to dissolve political gridlock and transform American democracy. As social networking and smart phones have changed the way we communicate with one another, these technologies are also changing our relationship with government.

Drawing on wide-ranging interviews with thinkers and politicians, Citizenville is the first book by Lieutenant Governor Newsom. He broke new ground as the mayor of San Francisco, one of the most high-tech, experimental, and progressive municipalities in the nation. But when Newsom’s tenure as mayor began, he found that San Francisco was behind the likes of Estonia and South Korea in terms of digital governance. Newsom’s quest to modernize one of America’s most modern cities—and the amazing results he achieves—form the backbone of this far-reaching book.

enchant.js Simplifies Game Development

Ubiquitous Entertainment exhibited their “enchant.js” technology for developing browser-based games at Digital Content EXPO 2012. This technology uses the cross-platform HTML5 and JavaScript languages to make it possible to write games for smartphones and PCs using very few lines of code. This makes it easy for many people, even elementary school students, to enjoy programming.

A key feature of enchant.js is that it pulls together into one place the ability to create content, show created games to others, and let them play the games. Ubiquitous Entertainment believes that free, open-source software will become the mainstream in the future, and is exploring a new business strategy of earning profit through sales of software related books and the sponsoring of events.
