We can fix the ‘supercommittee’

Dr. Hahrie Han is the Knafel Assistant Professor in the Social Sciences at Wellesley College and specializes in the way citizens connect to politics. She is the author of Moved to Action: Motivation, Participation, and Inequality in American Politics.

Congress has brought the country to the brink of disaster, yet again, and the American people are almost entirely fed up. Recent polls show that instituting communism in the United States is more popular than our democratically elected congressional leaders.

Vijay Ravindran is senior vice president and chief digital officer for The Washington Post Company. Before joining The Post, he was chief technology officer for the start-up political technology firm Catalist and technology director for Amazon.com.
I own and use a lot of tablets. Our home includes an iPad, Android Honeycomb tablet, an original 7-inch Android Samsung Galaxy Tab, and an e-ink Kindle. So, it was no surprise when I, like many others, submitted my pre-order for the Kindle Fire, which arrived at my front doorstep on release day.

The top talent in countries around the world have a new suitor: the Chinese government.
China has a severe shortage of skilled talent and, in a policy reversal, has decided to open its doors to talent from around the world. This could mean that the brilliant NASA scientiststhe U.S. laid off, could find new employment — and a new home — in Shanghai or Beijing.

Selecting our legislators by voting is a hallowed tradition, but must all traditions remain forever? In light of candidates’ ever more sophisticated manipulation machines, might the greater good be served by selecting rather than electing our legislators?
