Civic Technology Community in Taiwan, which started gathering from the Open source software and Open data usage campaign in 2012 organized the Hackathon activities to expand the population interested in using the Open source and Open data technology, while helping to publicize the information of governmental organizations through online platforms. Civic Technology in Taiwan also plays some roles in political movements and its campaign through online platform. Open source and Open data activities have started to emerge in Thailand as well. However, due to the political situation impeded in Thailand, the technological concepts to create ‘public good’ remain new, which later leads to limited use of Open source and Open data in social movements and connection with the civil society in only certain directly related issues such as environmental or urban development. How the successful factors of Civic Technology community in Taiwan help guide the development of a serious creation of the Civic Technology Community in Thailand as well as building a long-term cooperation between Thai and Taiwan Civic Technology Communities.

  23. 23. Suggestion to replicate Civic Tech from Taiwan to Thailand - To continuously organize activities that strengthen relationship among members of Civic Tech community who are interested in Open Data and Open Source linked to social issues. - To incubate innovation from Civic Tech Community and make it practical through the crowdfunding or investment for social enterprise to pave the way for sustainable Civic Tech innovation. - To open up a space for greater public participation, both local and national levels, in the debate about proposals made by Civic Tech community linked to the public policy and the government’s decision. - To build new generation leader, in every year the community should have a new generation involves for transition of community’s leadership and keep continue the activities with new ideas.
  24. 24. Conclusion The fundamental factor that keep Civic Tech activities going is democracy, open space for different groups to express their opinions and consensus to continue working as a team. Civic Tech team must work harder to enlarge the community, create greater open space for people who work in information technology, the important group for Civic Tech community, gain better understanding about social issues and structure of the Thai society. Also, take note of examples and lessons learned from Civic Tech communities in other countries For Thailand
