I had the great pleasure this week of participating in a Code For America brainstorming session with members of the City of Philadelphia Mayor's office and Division of Technology. It was a fantastic experience as we discussed how technology can drive stronger and more efficient communications between citizens and City Hall, as well as help citizens create solutions for themselves within their neighborhoods. This is part of the larger Digital Philadelphia initiative, of which I am a very happy participant on the web applications side. We have a public-private committee to bring open data and open applications to Philadelphia as they have in DC, NYC, San Francisco and other places. We are fortunate to have insight and participation from Comcast, Navteq and Wharton to Indy Hall, City Hall and the startup community. It is certainly an exciting time to be in Philadelphia! If you are not familiar with Code For America, take a look at the video and visit the site. It is a fantastic mission. Continue reading
