Jock Gill served President Bill Clinton as a communications specialist, and has gone on to reflect deeply on public communications as the inherent foundation of democracy.  As part of that process he has recognized–and taught us and others–that open spectrum as championed by David Weinberger is an inherent “need” for full and open public communications.

Below are two documents, the first is his presentation notes from OSS ’04, and the second is the first page linking to David Weingerger’s seminal White Paper that was also published as a chapter in COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE: Creating a Prosperous World at Peace.  The Frog leads to the original online; the page on the right to the printable version of the chapter.
