What can we learn from the civic tech community in Taiwan about public discourse and engagement? (#FWD50)

  1. The g0v civic tech community holds regular hackathons, where teams self-organize around projects. Project code is housed on GitHub, and team members may shift on or off organically.
  2. One of these projects is vTaiwan, which is “an online-offline consultation process which brings together government ministries, elected representatives, scholars, experts, business leaders, civil society organizations and citizens. The process helps lawmakers implement decisions with a greater degree of legitimacy.
