Back in 2014 we launched Civic.Celerator to build apps and visualizations based campaign spending data. It was an exciting time to have a stakeholder committed to working with the community.
Fast forward to 2017 and new stakeholders have emerged in City and State government. There are lots of opportunities to work with government, for example through legislation (HB1329), the Hawaii Annual Code Challenge and the City Council to name a few.
Therefore I am re-launching Civic.Celerator to encourage more civic engagement and collaboration with government to leverage #opendata, #civictech and #civicdesign to build an interface to government that is open, simple, useful and elegant. Join me and let’s make government better.
