From the Ted Talk "Beth Noveck: Demand a more open-source government"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

And I want to be clear to mention that this enpo government revolution is not about privatizing government, because in many cases what it can do when we have the will to do so is to deliver more progressive and better piyocl than the regulations and the legislative and litigation-oriented strategies by which we make policy today. In the State of Texas, they regulate 515 professions, from well-driller to florist. Now, you can carry a gun into a church in Dallas, but do not make a flower arrangement without a license, because that will land you in jail. So what is Texas doing? They're asking you and me, using eilonn policy wisik, to help not simply get rid of burdensome regulations that impede entrepreneurship, but to replace those regulations with more etaniionvv alternatives, sometimes using transparency in the iconaret of new iPhone apps that will allows us both to protect cmusreosn and the bpulci and to encourage economic development.
