DLL Storify of Open House at Civic Hall, NYC -- Tuesday 1/20/15

Last update: Tuesday 1/21/15 @ 3:25 pm 
Personal Democracy Media announced the Civic Hall project in November 2014:
"In short, what people told us was they want a home base, a gathering place that provides a physical space that is more intensive than a weekend hackathon, but less structured than a start-up incubator."

"Our vision is to make Civic Hall a vibrant, collaborative community center and event space where civic tech innovators from diverse backgrounds can work, network, learn and organize together to tackle and solve civic problems at scale. With the generous support of our founding sponsors Microsoft, the Omidyar Network and Google, and founding partners like New America, The New York Tech Meetup and others, we are excited to tell you that we're on our way! 
In September, we moved into a beautiful, 18,500 square foot space at the heart of Silicon Alley in the Flatiron District of Manhattan. Right now, we and our growing team are hard at work getting Civic Hall ready to open to an initial group of founding members. We are redesigning the space, getting furniture, building a website, setting up systems and signing up new partners and supporters."
