Apps for the World
If you are graduating in these times of crisis, think of the amazing opportunities that the combination of web technologies, collaborative production, and the idea of open access offer. Consider starting something like mySociety for your country.
Hello! We are mySociety â€“ we run most of the UKâ€™s best known democracy websites.
Using our services, 200,000 people have written to their MP for the first time, over 8,000 potholes and other broken things have been fixed, nearly 9,000,000 signatures have been left on petitions to the Prime Minister, and at least 77 tiny hats have been knitted for charity.
They created apps like, theworkforyou, fixmystreet, hearfromyourmp, or groupsnearyou. The code is open source, join them, or start your own projects. It is time for planetary public policy. RT @schellong #gov20 UK activities (Fixmystreet, etc.) http://www.mysociety.org/
