Mostly I'd like to learn more about public data and civic engagement technology. Also I'd like to meet likeminded people working on this stuff, because we haven't found other people working on civic engagement tech in DeKalb... I'm just looking for an intro to civic coding, but I'd like to ask about the state of general public data distributions. It seems like most jurisdictions have their own way of doing things? And they don't easily sync up? Thanks for the invite
If you'd like, myself and/or Vince could summarize the EveryVote.org Facebook app which is meant to increase voter turnout in student government elections.
Project Manager for EveryVote.org, Master's student in Instructional Technology at NIU. Trying to support and build things that will help us make wiser crowd decisions.
I'm very happy to have been introduced to IOT. It sounds like a great organization, and I'm really impressed by the ILOpenTech Challenge. And thank you Alya, Daniel, and Marlene for the free food! :D I told everyone who enjoyed it about the competition.
