The Austin Tech Alliance is a nonpartisan grassroots organization dedicated to promoting a civically engaged tech community within the growing Austin tech sector, and tech solutions for government programs. Their projects currently include TechVotes Austin, a program that educates voters who work in tech about policies and politicians that affect their work and helps recently relocated workers register to vote in Texas. The alliance is also working alongside the City of Austin on the Paper Census program. The Paper Census is a joint effort to identify all unnecessary paper based processes within the city and replace them with more efficient digital solutions.
In this episode Charlie and Kyle speak with David Edmonson, the CEO of the Austin Tech Alliance. The trio chat about the importance of being civically active, Texas’ low voter turn out, and how technology companies and governments can work together to make the world a better place.
