Tech'ing while Lawmaking: Can politics keep up with innovation?

DO YOU MIX TECH AND POLITICS? Is it an explosive recipe for civic innovation or disaster? 
What's in the magic sauce for civic innovation? Please join SF Tech Dems for a mixer and panel discussion on the nexus of disruptive innovation and majoritarian democracy. 
Codes we live by, laws we follow, and computers that move too fast to care -- our laws and ethical practices have evolved over centuries. Today, technology is on an exponential curve and is touching practically everyone—everywhere.
– Vivek Wadhwa, Stanford University
