Former Google lawyer and WITNESS Board Member Nicole Wong talks to Recode about Future of Tech Policy

This week, WITNESS board member and former deputy CTO of the United States Nicole Wong sat down with Recode’s Kara Swisher to talk about the future of tech policy and why content moderation is more complicated than many people think.

Wong is the former U.S. Deputy Chief Technology Officer focusing on internet, privacy, and innovation policy. Prior to joining the Obama administration, Nicole served as Twitter’s Legal Director for Products and, from 2004 – 2011, as Google’s Vice President and Deputy General Counsel. She frequently speaks on issues related to law and technology, including five appearances before the U.S. Congress.

Wong also spoke about WITNESS’ work and how it empowers grassroots activists to use video for change and justice.
