The Open Planning Project’s (TOPP) mission is to build technology to enhance the role of the citizen in democratic society.

They believe that a more informed and empowered populace will effect real change. TOPP draws inspiration from the ideas, processes and success of the open source software movement. To that end the tools enhance government transparency and provide opportunity for citizen participation in shaping society.

The podcast: A few quick updates about what’s happening at NetSquared, followed by Eddie Codel’s interviews with Korise Jubert and some of his students from the DJ Project, and with Rob Miller of OpenPlans.org.
