MIT Media Lab, E14 Third-Floor Atrium
Tom Steinberg is founder of MySociety.org, a project based in the UK which has built a slew of sites that help people report problems with and gain service from their local and national government. As their website says, "Using our services, 200,000 people have written to their MP for the first time, over 65,000 potholes and other broken things have been fixed, over 120,000 people get emailed about things that happen in Parliament, and at least 77 tiny hats have been knitted for charity."
Steinberg will give a short talk, engage in an interview with Ethan Zuckerman (Director, Center for Civic Media), and then answer audience questions.
