One Year In Action, Our New Years Eve Newsletter
It’s December 31st and the year is coming to an end. A lot has happened in the 8 months since we first launched our online platform. We have had our fair share of triumphs and struggles, controversy and the mundane, but overall this year has been magical. Given that our overarching vision is to broaden the scope of civic engagement with technology, we are tremendously happy with the progress that has been made:
- We now have over 1,000 Civinomics members, and show no signs of slowing down.
- We have 6 of the 7 members of the Santa Cruz city council and multiple members of the board of supervisors online, listening in to new community ideas.
- We have spoken at events, been covered in local papers and even thrown a 3 day conference of our own.
- In just the past 4 months we have conducted over 2,000 iPad interviews, the largest in a single campaign to date.
But this is just the tip of the iceberg. As a celebration of this year in review we created the following infographic that highlights some of our more noteworthy accomplishments. Take a look, share it with your friends, and join us in welcoming an even better year in 2014.
Thanks, and Happy Holidays!,
The Civinomics Team
