Change the government with 'Code for'

For Code for NL, we were present at the Code for America Summit in Oakland. This movement grows fast: there are about 1,200 visitors at this 5th edition, of which are at least 60% first time visitors. Code for America succeeds in connecting the technical optimism of Silicon Valley to people that strive for social innovation, not just for the upper class, but for everyone.

Some good examples of projects and apps that were awarded at this summitcan be found here: http://awards.codeforamerica.org. More about our visit to the conference can be found in the Dutch version of this blog post.

Waag Society is the iniator of Code for NL. Do you want to change the government from the iside? And be part of an international network of civic innovators? Code for NL is still looking for new fellows!
