Citizen Beta: a Short Long History of Civic Tech

29 May 2018 - 19:00 pm - 23:00 pm

Newspeak House, 133 Bethnal Green Rd, London E2 7DG

When you hear words like civic tech and open data, we tend to think about shiny websites and csv downloads. But there is nothing necessarily modern or digital about civic tech.

Citizen Beta, History & Policy and mySociety have worked together to bring you historians with perspectives from different points in history where technology has changed the relationship between the citizen and the state.

For more details, speakers and to sign up, see Citizen Beta's signup page.
