Digital D.C.: How Information Technology Is Transforming the Hub of American Politics
The role of Washington, D.C., at the forefront of American digital culture is increasing. While the city has historically been a repository for tremendous amounts of government information, and military developments in the capital have helped lead to important digital developments, the city’s transition to a booming center with a generation of tech-savvy professionals is relatively recent. Chapters cover Washington’s centuries-old roots as an information city, its new role as a Silicon Valley of the East, digital bureaucracy, the city’s hip modern culture, a new emphasis on the arts based on new technologies, and Washington’s digital future.
