Catherine Bracy: Why good hackers make good citizens
Hacking is about more than mischief-making or political subversion. As Catherine Bracy describes in this spirited talk, it can be just as much a force for good as it is for evil. She spins through some inspiring civically-minded projects in Honolulu, Oakland and Mexico City — and makes a compelling case that we all have what it takes to get involved.
Catherine Bracy is the Director of Community Organizing (and former International Program Manager) of Code for America and on the Boards of Directors of The Public Laboratory for Open Technology and Science and the Citizens Engagement Laboratory Education Fund. Previously she was Tech4Obama Program Manager of Obama for America, Event Curator for Google, and an employee of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
