* Knight Foundation “promotes the best ideas to advance journalism, the arts and the success of cities.” Take a look on the topics they work on, specially interesting is the Successful Cities..


This is a personal project I start some few years ago. Is a scoop.it repository http://www.scoop.it/t/cities-dataviz where I start collecting projects related to citizen`s activism. There are different types: from mapping projects (take a look to the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project San Francisco, one of my favorites) to app services (an extremely impressive project is the 5-0 app, for networking neighboors around police abuses in USA).


I suggest to suscribe to the newsletter of www.thegovlab.org In the GovLab mission I highlight the idea that they believe that increased availability and use of data, new ways to leverage the capacity, intelligence, and expertise of people in the problem-solving process, combined with new advances in technology and science can transform governance.
The weekly newsletter ir always full of interesting news, projects (mainly based in the USA) and publications.


the link to The Gov Lab doesn’t seem to work. I have found thegovlab.org is it ok?


grande @FrancescoP! giusto, e thegovlab.org. aggiorno il post originale!


I’ve copied all your links @angeles_briones to the wiki post. I think a wiki list is more useful than one topic per link format. That’s why I’ve made a wiki topic that everyone can edit.

To explain myself better: you can edit the first topic in this threat and add the links directly there.

If you think is better to create a different topic per link is ok too :slight_smile:


Thanks a lot @skotperez! I am new using Discourse (and because of my inaptitude) I didn’t got the wiki list. Think the wiki list is the best idea, let’s continue what you start. :sunglasses:


Hello Everyone,

I have created an Excel document trying to gather all the initiatives that related in certain ways to the Civictech. You can add all the initiative that you know directly on it!

Here is the link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bw957Mdtq4JlYXNfREN6VkgtdzQ/view?usp=sharing

@skotperez I will add all the references that are currently on this page.


@Elsa_K I think the OGP Toolbox could be a good platform to collect and document these initiatives. :wink:


https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1FzmvVAKOOFdixCs7oz88cz9g1fFPHDlg0AHgHCwhf4A/edit?usp=drive_web is really really good as well @skotperez
