CivicHaven (2010)

CivicHaven was a prototype for a civic web application. I was tasked by the Mayor of New Haven's Task Force for the Social Web to devise a platform that would provide citizens with better tools to connect with each other and to solve issues facing their communities. At the core of the application was a system for users to propose ideas about things they wanted to do for their communities and then a mechanism which automatically connected the ideator with other citizens with relevant ideas and skillsets. The prototype was constructed using a highly customized installation of Wordpress.
