From BetaNYC:
It has been six hot months since we changed our name. In that time, we’ve been ironing out an update to our Purpose, Values, Goals, Mission, and Tools.

For now, this is the language we are working with. If you would like to add your comments or tweaks, visit our GitHub and comment away.

Moving from potholes to policies requires more than technical fixes or killer apps. But as we build and use these technologies around principles like these, we are starting to see better results in solving seemingly intractable civic problems, and people are starting to believe that peer-produced governance is actually possible. Help us move farther along this path by sharing your principles for this work, giving us feedback on ours, and telling your own stories about how these principles have played out in your experience.
