On Saturday, Cathy Wissink and I attended a series of Ignite talks as part of the local National Day of Civic Hacking hosted by Code for Boston at the CIC.  The talks were AWESOME. A few highlights include:

  • Resilient Coder‘s Micah Martin talked about his own journey to empowerment through coding.
  • Cambridge City Councilor and Danger! Awesome owner Nadeem Mazen spoke about increasing civic engagement by inviting us aggressively back into creativity and encouraging us to run for office.
  • MAPC Data Services’ Director Holly St. Clair gave tips on how to defeat zombie data projects. Tip #4: Aim for the head!

To keep up with Aimee you need to be up early. Like 5 AM early. Then you have to squeeze in Crossfit, grow STEM education programs, collaborate with community leaders and still keep up with her family - 2 boys require high energy. Or you can hit the snooze and sleep soundly knowing Aimee has that all covered.
