New EGAD! Leland and I discuss Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and what we've been reading, including Lawrence Wright’s Scientology expose and The Goldfinch. Also: devil-worshipping rocket engineer Jack Parsons, character-driven science fiction, and more.

What can civic technologists learn from civic-minded artists, and vice versa? Vote for me and +Emily Wright 's SXSW panel: Taking it to the Street: Neighborhood as Interface.

New feature on Culture Coin, a proposed alternative currency that would allow artists to pool their resources and build a self-sustaining circle of resilience.

Three days to go! Please vote for "Disobeying the Smartphone," the SXSW proposal I submitted with +Emily Wright , about how civic technology can better serve citizens and communities by using old-school tech (SMS, paper, etc) and on-the-ground organizing.

Civic technologists, engaged artists, and makers are doing amazing things in their own silos, but what can happen when neighbors and creators step out of their spaces and collaborate? "Taking it to the Street: Neighborhood as Interface" is a SXSW panel proposal by +Emily Wright  and myself, please vote!

iOS6 maps of Austin might be shitty maps, but they're pretty great art.

Tagline
Telling stories online and off, exploring the spaces where data, art, and civics intersect
Introduction

I currently work with a number of organizations, including Pivotal and Howlround. Previously I edited Shareable Magazine, and served as Content Manager and Strategist at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. My work has also appeared in publications such as GOOD, Utne Reader, the AV Club, and the SF Weekly. I blog about art, data, and civil society at Cohere.

Austin via Chicago via Santa Cruz. Irascible but empathetic.
