Civic hacking

                

I recently watched Catherine Bracy‘s TED Talk on Civic Hacking. It’s an amazing way to empower citizens and an easy way to get involved in your community. Even better, it appeals to all ages, but especially the more apolitical set under 50. Despite the name, civic hacking requires no coding ability, only a desire to creatively solve problems. Check out the Code for America Brigades to learn more and get involved. I can’t wait for their map to be completely covered with pins! National Day of Civic Hacking is only a couple months away!
