Discussion:

  • Biggest turn-out yet - lots of introductions, lots of catch-up on the status of CfH
  • We're an official brigade!
  • Now on to finding projects
  • Let's look to others for examples
  • One is citygram.org (project out of NYC)
  • Look to the Midwest and the South for similar scope of projects
  • Perhaps do Google Hangouts w/other brigade captains?
  • Important to find a gov partner to collaborate with, so we're all on the same page. (Not looking for funding.)
  • It's less a competition of making the best app out there, and more, how can we provide best info to citizens
  • Find a project/cause you're passionate about and use data to improve it
  • -OR-
  • Find data available and get an idea for a project/cause that can be improved
  • (But where is this data?)
  • We want to be the go-to spot for all things data in Hawaii. Let's make that happen.
  • We should be the ones telling the Hawaii civic tech story
  • Work on projects you're passionate about and use CfH as your umbrella

Action Items:

  • Stephan is Pizza Wrangler
  • Everyone needs to take initiative. Check out the trello board and snag a task.
  • Billy will contact peeps in Oakland about speaking about local civic hacking there
  • Potentially be a speaker at a future Wet Ware? (We're interesting and drink beer.)
  • Brainstorm ideas for next hackathon
  • Next meeting is August 26th. Be there and be square.
