Here is a great assignment that I just did for the June issue of Government Technology. The article is titled, "A Match Made in Government". The story describes, "a metaphorical chasm at the heart of civic tech. Standing on one side of the divide are municipal and state governments, anxious to enhance digital services, reduce costs, bolster efficiency, and, ultimately, serve the public better. On the other side, straining to see what’s across, are tech startups that have often done in the private sector exactly what the governments want so badly to accomplish. Now, if only the two sides could meet."
I thought it would be fun to show the two sides of the aisle. On one, there are the entrepreneurs- self starting business owners and tech engineers who bring their talent to the table in their own way. On the other side, you have the conservatively dressed business suits of traditional government. Each side is eyeing up the other, trying to figure out a way to work together on the same projects. Many thanks to Kelly at eRepublic for the art direction!
