Business strategist and author Don Tapscott explains how he is working to create government Web sites intended to get American citizens engaged in democracy. He says the Internet can make government more open, participatory and efficient — and maybe even smaller and cheaper, too.

Tapscott is the author of Wikinomics and chairman of a business strategy think tank called nGenera.
