Alec Ross is an up and coming star on the e-government scene. As an technology advisor to Secretary Hillary Clinton, he is spearheading the State Department's 21st Century Statecraft initiative. Also, he is leading Civil Society 2.0, a program to educate and train grass-roots organizations around the world to create Web sites, blog, launch text messaging campaigns, and build online communities.
