Title:Remediating Civic Tech
Author(s):Weber, Nic; Brown, Jackson
Subject(s):civic tech
open data
government transparency
Abstract:Civic technologies are designed to mediate government and citizen interactions, but often fall short of this goal. In this poster, we present our on-going work of remediating civic tech applications in order to connect citizens to government services, and to one another. We describe the development of an open-source transcription engine that transforms video into searchable archives of government legislative meetings. By exploring the process of re- mediation, we argue that civic tech designers can better achieve their goals of brokering relationships between people, information, and governance.
