Code for America

I’m super excited to help out Code for America, by volunteering as a Code for Seattle brigade captain over the next year. The parent organization and local chapter are focused on encouraging Civic Hacking – getting programmers to volunteer time towards improving our local community.

This to me is the flip-side of government transparency, where transparency is encouraged through citizens taking an active roll in publishing and promoting data. This lets us have the conversation of what data we want collected in a concrete rather than abstract way, and makes the data this is collected more valuable.

The C4A Announcement of Brigade Captains was nice enough to put Seattle first.
