Civic Hackers Invade San Francisco

On the way in to Civic Center this morning, I stopped by the new SoMa offices of Code for America, a non-profit startup that deploys top web professionals in one-year fellowships building Web 2.0 applications for cities across the U.S. The fellows, recruited from around the country, are here for January before heading off for a month of hands-on research at their host cities.

Code for America is hosting an open house on Wednesday night, and also ‘Labs Fridays,’ in SF and host cities, where coders will work to resolve smaller municipal tech and operational challenges on the spot.

Very cool to have this action-oriented program in San Francisco!
