So one alternative to civic hackers regularly searching with Google News is to keep current by periodically checking out the websites from leading organizations involved in civic hacking.
Today I’m presenting a (very subjective) list of the top 10 sites for civic hacking news.
Without further ado, flawed though it may be, here is my June 2015 list of top 10 sites for civic hacking news:
So a few of the interesting sites that didn’t make the cut for the top 10 are listed below, in no particular order. These are ones you may want to check out if you are very interested in this field. You might put some of them on your top 10 list because you like their writing style or website layout, or because they provide better coverage for aspects of civic hacking about which you’re most passionate.

I’ll probably update the top 10 list in this post periodically when I find better candidates than the one’s I chose in June 2015. As I find new valuable sites that don’t quite rate the top 10, I’ll also add those worthwhile sites to the above list of alternates for you to consider.
