With all our technologies—from search to Chrome to Gmail—our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to find the information you need and get the things you need to do done. This means making search smarter and faster, so it can understand that when you type [jaguar] you’re looking for the car, not photos of the animal. It means showing you when your friends like an ad or a search result, so that you know it might be valuable. It means making our products work intuitively, so that you can share documents with Gmail contacts without having to copy and paste, and open the same tabs on your Android phone that you have open on your Chrome browser on your desktop. Above all, it means making our products work better so that people can spend time on the stuff they’re good at—like enjoying time with family, camping in the wilderness, painting a picture or throwing a party. We’re not there yet, but we’re working on it.

But governing often proves more challenging than revolution or rebellion. And the conceptual space of the public square in the 21st century means an enlivened public square, with a citizenry better informed, engaged, and equipped with the civic ability to participate, contribute, and share the responsibility for the difficult choices of our time. This is the core work of city government: building civic capacity and literacy.
