a16z Podcast: The Changing Relationship Between Tech and Government


    Just a few years ago if you were mayor of Washington D.C. –- or any other city — you didn’t have to wrap your head around the likes of Airbnb, Lyft, and other companies in the fast-growing ‘sharing economy’. They didn’t exist. Now, you have no choice says Washington D.C.’s current Mayor Muriel Bowser … because the citizens in your city certainly already have.

    Bowser joins the a16z Podcast, along with former D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty (who is currently a special advisor to a16z), to discuss how technologies and tech companies are changing cities and government, and how moving forward government may play a bigger role. That, and the case for more transparency in government, on this segment of the pod.
