Digital Diplomacy in NYT Magazine

A long, much discussed New York Times Magazine article profiles Alec Ross, Jared Cohen, and others at the State Department regarding their innovative strategies to use new technologies to serve the nation’s diplomatic goals, and to improve democracy around the world.  The article, called Digital Diplomacy, quotes Alec as calling Secretary of State Hilary Clinton the “godmother” of digital diplomacy.  She and Alec call digital diplomacy “21st Century Statecraft.

Alec is a friend of the Space & Telecom Program at the University of Nebraska.  He spoke at our last conference in DC, giving a brilliant and inspiring opening keynote that my students still refer to with some awe.
