E-Democracy/Open Twin Cities went to Chicago on an amazing two day “civic tech field trip” (blog posts pending on what we learned). Thanks to Derek Eder with DataMade and Chris Whitacker with the Smart Chicago Collaborative and Code for America, we had a room at the amazing 1871 co-working/incubator space to share some of our lessons as well!
Here is the video.
