Fitting Myself In




In putting together my Thesis project, I wanted to place my project in the current climate of what was out there.  So I mapped it out, using 3 metrics.  Locality: does a platform focus on ultra local issues or broader policy issues?  Tech: does the platform utilize high tech or low tech?  Conversation: does the platform encourage reporting (information sent in one direction) or collaboration (create a space for conversation to take place in a two way communication).  

I put my project, ❤ Gov, up against various platforms which look at information sharing among groups of people.  311, U-Report,, Wikipedia, and community town halls.  

Where I aim to situate myself is a locally based, low tech, collaborative tool.
