My talk at the 2013 Social Innovation Summit. Democracies get their strength from the people’s trust. When the interactions that people have with government are so divorced from how they live their lives, or are hard and unpleasant, what does that do to the trust that underlies our democracies? At Code for America, we try to restore trust in government by building interfaces to essential government services that are simple, beautiful, and easy to use.

We take four approaches: 1) we work directly with government officials (at the local level) to create the capacity inside government to build innovative solutions to hard problems; 2) we build communities of technologists and citizens who want to lend their skills to help build their governments; 3) we build tools that make citizen interactions with government easier, simpler, and more elegant, so that the experience of government is positive and breeds trust. 4) We incubate and accelerate civic startups to create new
economic models for those tools.

Don’t stop believing that government can work, and can be a force for good
