I was fortunate to attend the Code for America Summit last week in San Francisco. It was great to meet 450+ leaders from innovative cities, start-ups, and organizations.
As I was listening to the talks (note: you can watch them on YouTube now), a number of key quotes stood out to me.
As such, here's my 12 favorite quotes from Code for America Summit:
1) "If you want to go fast go alone. If you want to go far go together"
2) "Work on stuff that matters"
3) "Simple, elegant, secure"
4) "Future of open data is in government efficiency"
5) "Building a barn is like building community, the dividends pay off in the future"
6) "Advice: Do the stuff only you (government) can do. Get others to do stuff they can do for you."
7) "It's not what you do first that matters. It's what you do next."
8) "Lean Startup is a change of strategy with same overall vision"
9) "It's not so much fixing procurement, its ending fear-based buying."
10) "Its not complicated, its just hard."
11) "Find your wiggle room & experiment!"
12) "Deliver. Deliver often."
