A civic hacker? in Washington, DC, USA.
GovTrack.us lets you track and research bills in the U.S. Congress. I built and launched GovTrack in 2004.
Most of my other work is made up of contract projects and consulting for government agencies and foundations related to government transparency.
I also co-organize Open Data Day DC each year (see photo), support other hackathons, and you’ll often find me at Code for DC.
My side project Mail-in-a-Box makes it easy to deploy a mail server.
Open Government Data: The Book is my massive guide to the what and why of open government data (2012, updated in 2014).
Hackathon.guide is a logistical guide to running a hackathon.
