How you can influence your government’s technology choices

Zoom Room 4A

Calling all civic hackers, govtech nerds and activists! The Foundation for Public Code’s mission is “to enable public-purpose software and policy that is open and collaborative”. In practice, we mostly work with government organizations and technology vendors. However, members of the public often ask how they can encourage and help their governments to use open source. We want to use our visibility in this space for good - we’d love to be able to offer constructive suggestions to private citizens who want to get involved with government technology policy. We believe the MozFest community will know how - we’d love to hear what you’ve tried, what you’re doing now, and what strategies you recommend. Obviously laws and culture vary, but hopefully we’ll hear tactics and stories that inspire us all. Link to notes document:
