Why we hack

It’s just as much about the people inside the room as the people outside of it.

Supporting new contributors on their path to autonomy and agency sometimes begets future development entirely unrelated to the problems of the moment. You are building community more than building solutions, and the healthier and more positive the ecosystem, the more likely it’ll sustain beyond the initial commits. You, Josh, and Hackers like you, are the folks that inspire me to stay a civic hacker to this day. Thank you for blazing the trail with GovTrack, for continuing with VoxPopuli, and your continued efforts showing us all what #doingitright looks like.
