A civic hacker? in Washington, DC, USA.
I split my time between a number of projects that mostly mix technology and civic engagement:
Transparency for the U.S. Congress. Helps millions of individuals track and understand legislation; first website to create comprehensive open data for Congress; launched in 2004.
Reshaping Congress by empowering small dollar donors to make contributions based on the outcome of votes in Congress. Launched in 2015.
