"These days, the word 'hacking' doesn't always bring up a positive connotation.  But a gathering of creative and civic minded residents are changing that and at the same time trying to make a change in the community.

"Technical, civic-minded citizens can help create the tools to facilitate citizen interaction with government agencies, and have already done so by way of grass-roots-style application development efforts. [But] when it comes to citizen engagement, and the utilization of volunteers for technical purposes, sustainability should be at the heart of every project or job. Rapid innovation, while positive and invigorating, must also be sustainable and fruitful."

"For data journalism to develop beyond just being the latest fad, it has to engage and involve the people reading the news as well as creating it. Data journalism is not (just) about being clever and showing the world how clever you are. It has to be about more than that."

OIP Director Cheryl Kakazu Park attributed the increase to greater awareness among both the public and government agencies of the state’s open government requirements."

Have you ever gotten lost on a government website, or been confused about how it’s organized? We have. So we’re launching a new website for Honolulu citizens that’s simple, clean, and resident-focused. Honolulu Answers will be as easy to use and accessible as asking a real person a question.

Join us Saturday, July 28th, to rewrite local government!
