Submission + - LocalLabs - Do You Code for Local Communities? (e-democracy.org)

netclift writes: A couple hundred locally-oriented geeks have a new place to gather online: Local Labs — http://e-democracy.org/locallabs

Join LocalLabs for exchange among those developing technology to promote government transparency and accountability, enhance public participation, and build community engagement at the local level (on up). From software developers and web designers to those involved in open source, open standards and "Gov 2.0," this is an international "local up" network for those proudly geek and passionately local. Co-sponsored by E-Democracy.org and OpenPlans.org.

It runs on the GPL GroupServer — http://groupserver.org/ — tool which is an open source Google Groups style tool which is far more end-user friendly than Mailman.

This online group is a complement to the CityCamp Exchange which is more about policy exchange than hands-on technical exchange. See: http://e-democracy.org/citycamp
