On December 16, 2015, a group gathered at Civic Hall to look at two efforts to map the growing civic tech movement. John Farmer demoed civicgraph.io/, and Lawrence Grodeska Demoed Civic Maker’s (still not officially released) tool for mapping civic tech players. Then we took a few minutes to think of the various civic tech tool, companies, and organizations and categorized them into groups. Finally, we used that as a springboard to discuss what kind of mapping and categorization of civic tech tools and efforts would be most useful. I was honored to help lead the session, and to visually listen to the conversation and turn that into meeting visuals we used to further the discussion.
