Remembering the soldiers that fought and died at D-Day, especially my grandfather that 72 years ago today changed the course of the war.

Col. Russell P. (Red) Reeder, who accumulated six demerits in his first two hours as a cadet at West Point, but went on to become one of its most beloved graduates and a highly decorated commander in the D-Day invasion of Normandy, died last Sunday at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital in Alexandria, Va. He was 95 and lived in a military retirement community adjacent to Fort Belvoir, Va. Through five decades, Colonel Reeder left his mark on the acade...

Great to see real social sentiment being sent to our government officials! 
More than three-quarters of the state supports Gov. Bill Haslam's plan, according to a poll from a local tech startup.

Love to see people and technology coming together in so many ways to increase civic engagement…

Update:​ Tinder released the results of the first week of its Swipe The Vote campaign on March 25. If you're not sure which candidate to support in the 2016 presidential election, it's time to download Tinder. While dating sites have expanded in new and interesting ways in the past few years

Great to see President Obama talking about everything we are working on here at icitizen - Obama said the country needs to re-imagine the relationship between government and the private sector "so that we use technology data, social media in order to join forces around problems."

Download icitizen and help make a difference! 
Obama addressed the role of technology in civic life, defended the merits of government, talked about the digital divide, and of course, weighed in on the ongoing debate about digital privacy.

Sad to see Google have no Doodle today. D-Day - the day the Allied Forces joined together for the beginning of the end to the horrific genocide.

Great to see our space heating up - the winners will be you, the public. The easier it is to track real time social sentiment through online and mobile polling and surveys, the more our Government officials will not be able to deny what the public is really expecting. Say goodbye to those annoying calls at dinner on your landline (if you still have a landline) and even the end of lobbyists!
Google is seeking a foothold in the political polling industry.

"The election’s pretty extreme, as they usually are in the primaries, it’s so far left, and so far right," said Russ Reeder, the startup's CEO. "And so people are coming to icitizen to have their voice count from the majority middle of where people usually are.”

Story
Tagline
CEO at iCitizen. Leader of tech innovation and team culture. Loving life as a dad, high tech exec & triathlete.
Introduction
I am a 20-year veteran of the IT field and am currently serving as the CEO of iCitizen. iCitizen makes transparency and accountability possible in government, enabling citizens to engage directly with their representatives on issues that they, as constituents, care most about.

Through my career and my life, I've enjoyed being a constant student of change. I have been trying to apply (and constantly improve) my leadership philosophy, directly inspired by my family, of course, but also by my own experiences as a dad, a triathlete and, really, a human being just trying to be a better person and, as much as possible, help others live happier, more productive lives.

If that’s something you are interested in learning more about, I invite you to check out my blog at RussReeder.com.
