“Radical transparency has led to a radical transformation of social expectations of the government by citizens”
Audrey Tang is the first Digital Minister in Taiwan. She runs the Public Digital Innovation Space, a digital service at the national level which helps with the development and facilitation of public digital innovations and services. Before joining the government Audrey was a civic tech activist in Taiwan’s gov movement and participated in the Sunflower Movement.
Although an experienced software developer (she worked on the development of the Perl programming language), her role as an innovator in government is less about technology and much more about introducing new — and radical — changes to how government works.
