On May 31, 2014 Hawaii is participating in National Day of Civic Hacking by holding its own Hack to the Future II. Join the Code for Hawaii Brigade on this day of workshops, prototyping and civic hacks. We will use this day to build capacity and brainstorm projects to infuse government with civic innovation. Citizen engagement is taking hold in our community so let's focus on what we can accomplish in 2014.

Date Downloads 4/11 – 162 4/12 – 220 4/13 – 226 4/14 - 154In addition to the tweet stats and app downloads, there were the blog posts and articles by Jerome Koehler, Sheba Najmi (Code for America), Tara Coomans (Social Media Club of Hawaii), Ryan Ozawa (Hawaii Star) and Civil Beat. This all helped to maintain the dialog between the community and government. It also helped tremendously to document this process from various points of view. Another interesting outcome was the mashup of digital content, social media and the web. This Wordle word cloud captured the key words and people behind the tweets. John Garcia and Derek Gabriel created a spashpage for DaBusApp. Brian Dote created Tweetmapr, a map of tweets based on geolocation. These new ways of presentation and visualization help to stimulate ideas and insights into the data. Open data in combination with app development, social media and visualization tools not only create transparency and civic engagement but also stimulate new ways of understanding the data. With advancements in sentiment and word analysis, this opens up entirely new vistas of knowledge discovery. Acknowledgement: Diana Tran for DaBus graphics
