Episode 4: City Hall and civic tech - not yet perfect together, but still trying
Philly is to civic tech what Nashville is to country music. Or so it once was said. Lately, though, sounds of discord emanate from City Hall. Juliana Reyes of Technical.ly Philly shares her reporting on an exodus of tech talent from the new Kenney administration. Producer Sophie Reid listens in as a new city resident struggles with the city website. Still, Dawn McDougall of Code for Philly offers a more upbeat report on the state of civic tech (i.e. wrangling ones and zeroes for the public good). Finally, Committee of 70 CEO David Thornburgh reminds us what it takes to push innovation inside government. Listen to Episode 4 on Soundcloud. Subscribe via RSS feed or iTunes.
