We aimed to create a bipartisan forum that gathered together stakeholders from Capitol Hill and programmers from around the country to explore how social media could improve the legislative process.We believe that the public’s enthusiasm for the event demonstrated that we are on the right track.

Talented individuals, from both inside and outside of Congress, share a common passion for developing solutions to restore the faith of the American People in our country’s legislative institutions.Programmers and software developers are uniquely positioned to improve our nation’s legislative institutions- their creations will empower citizens to more meaningfully engage in the legislative process.New technologies have consistently provided both challenges and opportunities for our nation’s government.

In the 1920s, it was radio. In the 1950s, it was television. In the late 1970s, it was cable television. Today, we are again at such a moment- the rise of social media will enable a legislative process that is more participatory, more transparent, and, ultimately, more satisfactory to the American public.What follows in this document are the results of our first experiment, a Congressional Hackathon, to explore ways that social media can be used to improve our country’s legislative institutions.
