Code for America and other nationwide movements aim to make government and civic services as intuitively interactive and useful as the best e-commerce and social networking tools. They combine an open source mentality, civic love, and a can-do spirit. Join a discussion on successes and opportunities in delivering world-leading services through engaging the hacker community.
Presenters for this Disruptive Diner session include:
- Erin Richey has an interest in how public safety and citizen-driven open data can work together to create more livable cities. She'll show us the existing St. Louis County Crime Map and inspire discussion on the tools that can be developed to work with its data.
- Despite St. Louis' leadership in charitable organizations, many people who would benefit from these services are not aware that they exist. Determined to fix this disconnect, Liz Pund and team created GoodMap. This on-line tool is used to collect updated information about all of these services in an interactive map so that the public can find them while allowing organizations and citizens to better collaborate and share information about local community resources.
- Programmer and community advocate Dylan Hassinger aspires to transform St. Louis through the power of technology and community. He'll share his experiences with "civic hacking" and show how anybody can use digital tools to make a social impact. He'll also share plans and invite collaboration for the upcoming National Day of Civic Hacking, which gives cities an opportunity to roll up their sleeves and work together to improve our society.
This thought-provoking and intimate event will feature:
- A stimulating event around a compelling current theme.
- A few dozen attendees with cross-disciplinary relevance to the theme make for an ideal networking and discussion experience.
- A no-selling environment with notes and follow-up thoughts shared with all attendees.
- 3 short PechaKucha-style presentations on the theme by local experts in the field to inspire you and introduce you to the core concepts.
- Background information on the theme, the presenters, and fellow attendees, including a short bio and contact info for everyone in attendance.
- Food and ambience for making the kinds of social and intellectual connections that can transform your work.
