How to Open Source Our Government
Matt Makai, Coding Across America
Tim O'Reilly came to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) on Thursday, February 14th. Tim discussed a range of topics centered on open government and transparency. I attended Tim's talk as part of the greater Technology & Innovation team although he primarily came to talk with our new design and technology fellows. I thought it would be interesting to share his ideas with a wider audience. I've grouped the topics together in this post around the ideas - the ordering here is not necessarily how the discussion was structured. There were a lot of questions that directed the conversation. Any errors and omissions are mine.
