Best of TAP 2010: Scola on Washington's I.T. Guy.

In this article from our July/August issue, Nancy Scola profiled Carl Malamud, a fascinating gadfly few people have heard of. Malamud, who has the distinction of having hooked up the first White House internet connection back in the 1990s, is crusading to get every government document online and accessible to the public. Scola's piece not only introduces us to a memorable character, it helps us understand the brief but critical (and uneasy) relationship between the federal government and the information revolution.
