Govtech and Civic Tech

In the age of social media, citizens and governments (should they choose to pay attention) have a much higher level of visibility into what is going on in the communities that matter most to them. This behooves governments to design their processes, many of which are very ingrained, in a manner that is open and accountable to residents. This coupled with the trend of city governments choosing to embrace innovation and find new ways for City Hall to operate, makes government towns an ideal testbed for developing new processes and means of engagement.
