First Meetup of the Illinois Open Technology Challenge

Tonight I led the first gathering of the Illinois Open Technology Challenge, which brings government, developers and communities together in a common mission to use public data and create digital tools that will serve today’s civic needs and promote economic development.

It was a great night because we had in-depth conversations between government technology people and independent developers about specific data that can drive needed software that could help make lives better. Here’s the wrap-up post describing those ideas.
