Today the Blue Sky Originals section of the Chicago Tribune published an interview about my departure from Smart Chicago and my move to Ad Hoc: Dan O’Neil leaving Smart Chicago for digital government services firm
“When you talk about impact — which we all want to have — they’re making impact for millions of people right now, in this moment, on the Internet,” O’Neil said.
The firm is based in Washington, D.C., but O’Neil said he’ll work remotely and remain based in Chicago. He plans to stay involved in Chicago’s civic technology community.
“I will continue to have a voice as a resident of this city in the way things are run and how they go,” O’Neil said. “You can’t build good products for hundreds of millions of people in this country without caring about their digital skills and their access to your tools.”
