Today is GovFresh’s second birthday, and I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone and take stock of all that we’ve been part of since its inception.
Code for America founder Jen Pahlka and I had coffee a few days ago, and I left realizing I’ve never itemized the work that’s been done via GovFresh which, for my own sanity and inspiration, I’d like to do now.
All of what we’ve been part of has involved people who care and have great passion for improving our civic culture. Every day I get to talk and meet with great people doing great work, and it inspires me to work harder to try keeping up.
‘Good government’ isn’t good enough to them. These people going for great.
With the help of many, here’s what I’m proud to have been part of over the past 2 years:
Including starting GovFresh, many of the stories I have about the above involved little deliberation and planning. I’ve always felt it’s important to just do something and go into non-stop iteration mode.
While I don’t have much free time, I’m always open to working with people to help grow what I feel is an important cause. Please feel free to reach out to me with questions, ideas, sponsorship dollars and coffee and iTunes gift cards and free babysitting.
Thank you and happy birthday!
