Resetting in Action - What's Happening in Other Cities?
One group already advancing these aims is Code for America – a San Francisco-based non-profit inspired by the ideal of “helping governments work better for everyone with the people and the power of the web.” Sounds right up our alley, doesn’t it?
In Boston, Code for America is already partnering with the city government to bring the best features of social networking communities to public education.
In Philadelphia, Code for America is working with the city to streamline the ways residents connect with their government.
In Seattle, Code for America is helping this Government 2.0 leader bring the power of crowdsoucing and information sharing down to a block by block level, so every neighborhood can engage with government and with each other.
That’s Resetting in action.
