Alec Ross

“If you want to remain relevant, if you want to remain – to be blunt – powerful, you had better understand your networked citizenry.”

As senior advisor for innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Alec Ross is working to find ways harness the power of technology, and particularly social media, as a diplomatic tool. A cofounder of One Economy in 2000, he has long been interested in innovative uses of new technology to bridge economic, social, and power divides.
