Calling all citizen developers who may be interested in some pro bono geektastic work. The Council of the District of Columbia is looking for a few good geeks and geekets to do a pilot citizen engagement app to use within the council member’s office. The idea is to leverage open source hosted platforms or cloud based solutions such as WordPress, Drupal, Ning or others to provide a citizen facing collaboration portal where upcoming issues, legislation or policy decisions could be posted, citizen feedback or queries can be received, routed, tracked and resolved. Ideally, we are looking for a combination of SeeClickFix, WordPress/Ning and Workflow.
Anyone up for a challenge? Give me a shout. This is true citizen engagement and citizen development in the making in the nation’s capital. Lets get to work.
