Update: Code for America

So much has gone on in the last few months.
Im currently a fellow at Code for America where we kicked off our 11 month fellowship in Jan. of 2011.
Our website reads "Helping goverments work better for everone with the people and power of the web"
And to some extent thats true, but what this tag line fails to point out, is that Code for America is an organization powered by people who care about things that most people simply complain about. These are people who use their amazing computer skills
to make governments better through technology. As a designer I am humbled to be surrounded by such amazing programers, coders, developers and just people who are "civic minded" beyond belief.


I've spent the last few months learning about how governments work for their people.
We had our kick off in Januarry right before heading out to our cities photos here:
