Depending on how you look at things, the fields of OpenGov and Civic Tech are either in full retreat or preparing for the next major push forward.

The purpose of this 3-hour online unconference is to catch our breath as a community. 40+ people have already signed up on the Eventbrite page. You can RSVP here or there.

Please skim these two articles before the event begins:
Civic Tech's Act III Is Beginning by Joshua Tauberer
An Education in Community Technology by Daniel X. O’Neil

The provocative quote from Dan's article: "Yes, the civic tech movement should be shelved. It has run its course. The models of hack nights and civic apps and techno-determinist solutions have proven ineffective."

Breakout Topics:

Government Commitments - Myth or Reality? (Brad Gutierrez)
Bringing new energy and people to Civic Tech (Eric Arellano)
