In this thought-provoking overview, Richard Keck explores the idea that disruptive technologies not only upend existing markets but also upset the status quo that exists between important societal values such as privacy versus free speech. Disruptive technology thus requires all policymakers, including legislatures, the executive branch, courts, and nongovernmental groups, to rebalance existing values more rapidly than in the past, a process made difficult by a policymaking system designed to work in a world where “slow” is the institutional paradigm for change.
