Podcast:Impacts of Civic Technology Conference

14th April 2015 Posted by: Abby

Tech for Good TV headed down the river for The Impacts of Civic Technology (TicTec) Conference hosted by MySociety a few weeks ago. We wanted to find out more about what's going on in the Civic Tech space globally and how people know that the technologies they are using have an impact. We talked to MIT Media Lab's Ethan Zuckerman about his proposals to allow people to kick institutions back into shape so we can trust them once again; Catherine Bracey of Code for America about the success of their volunteer networks; Blair Glencourse of Accountability Lab about the effectiveness of some of their low-tech civic solutions in Liberia and West Africa...and many others. We also chatted to a selection of attendees from around the world to get their perspective on civic tech and how it's working in other countries.

You can find out more about each of the speakers and view their slides here - videos of the main talks are due to be up in the next week on the conference website.
