Tech for good TV: TICTeC Tech for Good

Tech for Good TV headed down the river for the Impacts of Civic Technology (TicTec) conference hosted by MySociety a few weeks ago. We wanted to find out more about what's going on in the Civic Tech space globally and how people know that the technologies they are using have an impact. We talked to MIT Media Lab's Ethan Zuckerman about how he proposes to allow people to kick the but of institutions so we can trust them once again, Catherine Bracey of Code for America about the success of their volunteer networks and Blair Glencourse of Accountability Lab about the effectiveness of some of their low-tech civic solutions in Liberia and West Africa, plus many others. We also chatted to a selection of attendees from around the world to get their perspective on civic tech and how it's working in their countries.
