Estonia is just an amazing place. I think the focus on using modern tools to kind of recreate the public sector and reimagine how government and citizens interact by using technology based on radical transparency. It is just incredibly impressive, I don’t think I have seen that anywhere else in the world. The thing I’m most impressed about is how quickly and efficiently citizens can do different things securely from voting to starting a business. The fact that every citizen can log in with their unique identity and see a record of every time the government has accessed their data and why I think this is a really important piece of accountability for government.
