Otto Jukebox - A multi-user streaming anti-cloud music player

Otto is an open source music jukebox app that disguises itself as an iTunes replacement without all the extra baggage, but is actually a web-first, fully streaming, anti-cloud, social music server that allows multiple people to listen to the same stream of music at the same time and DJ for each other. Kinda like a private turntable.fm. For Mac OSX and Linux. A limited demo loaded with some CC licensed music can be found here. [more inside]

Textizen - Citizen feedback for the digital age

Textizen is an open-source platform for collecting citizen feedback via text message. Holding in-person meetings can be expensive, time-consuming, and often results in non-representative feedback. Working with the Philadelphia City Planning Commission, my team at Code for America decided to build a better way to connect citizens to their city. Now, all residents and community members need is a few spare moments and a cell phone that supports text messages (~92% of Philadelphia households). In a city where 43 percent of residents don’t have internet access at home, we see text messaging and other mobile technologies as critical doorways to digital citizen participation. Do you see a use for Textizen in your community? Get it in touch with us on Twitter, or at Textizen.com. Developers can join us on GitHub, where we’ll continue to develop the Textizen code. Textizen in one animated minute [more inside]
