We live in a sea of information as never before, but how can we find what we need when we need it, and how do we know it’s accurate? How do we keep our private information private while reducing barriers to information about the affairs of government? And how can we develop and use new information tools to improve the lives of people everywhere?
These 10 priorities represent the most salient themes emerging from our initial events, subsequent meetings, and online exchanges. These challenges affect us all — in private and public life, in the workplace and classroom, and across a wide array of academic disciplines. They are presented here to serve as a spur for discussion that is broadly inclusive and for research that extends beyond narrow domains of expertise. They are an agenda for the future of information.
