General Project info
Sarah B Here's how it's supposed to work:
  1. A friend sends you a link to something they care about. For us it was: www.votenadeem.com/pledge (check it out). Maybe a video like this plays to get you acquainted with why you were linked to this page.
  1. You submit your pledge to register/vote/join an email list (I believe our submit button is broken for some reason).
  1. You are asked to find two or more others to share your zeal with, probably via a social media login/authorization (not built yet).
  1. As movement leaders, we then track which social hubs are making progress creating a movement "pledge tree" and who isn't with a visualization like this one: www.votenadeem.com/votertree

Sarah B If possible, I'd love to work on this short term or even help me build this into a usable movement building tool in the longterm. Here's two things I think could be done *this weekend* to substantially improve the tool:
 
SOCIAL/USABILITY: What has been imagined/designed wrong here? What (language, presentation, hook, design, etc.) will really cause people to want to receive this in a facebook message? Or what is the social avenue most likely to cause people to want to receive this? SMS? Phone call? The sky's the limit with automating communication through a platform like this - but what will work?
TECHNICAL/DESIGN: We never really made the thing good enough to deploy fully. It worked for like a week then we abandoned it to do some real, old school GOTV stuff. If someone just fixed this so it worked, that would be a huge help and we could visit a future revision/facebook integration/etc. later.

Hack for Democracy — Start Here
This hackpad is a wiki-esque place for Hack for Democracy (H4D) participants to share information, take notes, collaborate on projects, and develop internal processes. If you are unfamiliar with Hackpad, here is a quick tutorial.
 
We're just getting started in populating this wiki, so bear with us. Track progress here: Minimal Viable Wiki Checklist 
 
Sarah B And if you're confused or too busy to collaborate here in advance of H4D, don't worry. Just register to join us in person at H4D - Boston. See you there!
 
  • Information and Things to Do
General stuff
 
  • As we figure out the best practices of using Hackpad, we can document them here: Hackpad conventions (this is also a growing index of Hashtags, Collections, and Templates used across this hackpad/wiki)
  • Peruse the projects collection to see our current projects and how you can get involved with them.
  • If you're a designer or a software developer, explore our code repositories!
Danny M
  •  is there an h4d or teamdemocracy github repository?
Sarah B
  • There is not. I'd recommend each project establish their own repository and protocol, then put a link on their project Hackpad.
 
Hack for Democracy
H4D is a hackathon focused on ending the corrupting influence of money in politics. Started in San Francisco in 2014 by Team Democracy, the event brings together people with skills from many disciplines — design, technology, marketing, writing, art, political strategy, you name it — to work on projects supporting existing anti-corruption organizations OR to work on new ideas supporting the movement.
 
Team Democracy
H4D is a project from Team Democracy, an organization dedicated to supporting the anti-corruption movement.

Lyre C General Project info
Brian B
  • A unified news outlet and think tank for the campaign finance reform movement. 
 
Matt C What question(s) is this project is trying to answer?
Brian B Despite polling that shows that the role of money in politics is "important" or "very important to >95% of the people, it is rarely covered in the media. Furthermore, various reform groups all have multiple PR campaigns but no consolidated place to talk about them, while opponents of reform fund think tanks, "journalists", and "news" organizations. 
 
Radio Republic Regained is a think tank and media network dedicated to understanding politics and national events from a "Follow the Money" point of view. 
 
It is a unified news outlet for the campaign finance reform movement, and will fund and promote top thinkers and columnists who can contribute credibly on this issue.
 
It will produce video podcasts, blog posts, documentaries, a monthly or bi-monthly magazine (online & print-on-demand) and publish books. 
 
It will startup funds by crowdfunding, but run as a self-sustaining for-profit business after that.
