On Friday, Google, the Knight Foundation and Bloomberg Philanthropies brought together a small group of practitioners, funders and academics to talk and think about the technological lessons from the 2012 cycle and how they can be applied to civic engagement as a whole. I am so grateful to…
Was asked by Fast Company what I learned in 2013.
I learned how lucky I am to work with such an amazing team. That “team” includes the people past and present who make POPVOX possible, the advisors and circle of friends and family that keep us going, our investors (many of whom are also family), our friends, our clients, and those thousands of people across the country who make up our community.
Feeling very grateful.

Though their business models are different, their founders — who come from traditional backgrounds such as lobbying, government, public affairs and technology — share a common objective to make policymaking more accessible and transparent."
