Next Civic Hacking Event In NE Wisconsin -- January 12, 2016

The next meetup of civic hackers in NE Wisconsin is scheduled to happen at Appleton Coworking from 7 to 9 PM on January 12, 2016. If you don’t know what civic hacking is, we’d love to have you come, and we’ll answer your questions about the topic. (For an intro to civic hacking, see “Why Good Hackers Make Good Citizens.”)

If you already know what civic hacking is, that’s even more reason to show up on January 12. You can work on your own civic hack, or you can help others with civic hacks they’re working on.

120 N. Morrison St, Appleton, WI, USA -- Appleton Coworking is on the first floor
Appleton Coworking is in downtown Appleton at 120 N Morrison Street, Suite 101, just north of College Avenue. Click here for a location map.

Parking options are typical downtown Appleton parking. There are lots of metered spots near AHQ if you come before 6 and want to plug meters. Nearby metered spots should be free after 6 PM; just check the instructions on the parking meter to verify the hours of enforcement. There are also nearby parking ramps, which cost $2.

Below are the NE Wisconsin civic hacking meetups of 2015. The first civic hacking event ever held in our region was in June 2015. Back-to-school activities made September too hectic for a meetup, and we skipped December due to the Christmas holidays.

Tomorrow I’ll write a blog post about “2016 Civic Hacking Food For Thought” for people to consider and discuss in NE Wisconsin places such as Appleton, Black Creek, Brillion, Chilton, Clintonville, Combined Locks, Darboy, De Pere, Egg Harbor, Elkhart Lake, Fish Creek, Florence, Fond du Lac, Grand Chute, Green Bay, Green Lake, Greenville, Hilbert, Kaukauna, Kewaunee, Keshena, Kimberly, Kohler, Little Chute, Manitowoc, Marinette, Menasha, Neenah, New London, Oconto, Oshkosh, Peshtigo, Plymouth, Ripon, Seymour, Shawano, Sheboygan, Shiocton, Sturgeon Bay, Suamico, Two Rivers, Washington Island, Waupaca, Waupun, Wautoma, Winneconne and all the other cities in our region that I didn’t list here.

Please set aside a couple hours on Tuesday, January 12, 2016, to work with fellow NE Wisconsin residents to make our cities, counties and region a better place to live in the new year.

See you on January 12 at Appleton Coworking!!
