About Us

We are a team of entrepreneurs in DC and Charlottesville, passionate about improving the quality of our national political discourse. The software we’ve created uses a unique method for organizing knowledge and solving problems.

AthenaBridge software helps organizations sort through complex issues by either engaging their members or the public in productive, online deliberation.  Drop us a note at hello@athenabridge.com!

    Ahoy! Is Athena providing online presence for the Open Government Directive Workshop Series (Jan 11th @ DOT)?

      Hello Barry, yes AthenaBridge is one of the co-organizers of the event. Our software will not be used for the January workshop, because the open government community is still getting its feet on the ground. For the January workshop, online participation will consist of live video streaming and discussions on Twitter and Google Groups. Our primary means of documenting the knowledge that is created at and between the workshops is through the OpenGov Playbook which is a wiki: http://www.opengovplaybook.org

      We will start using more in-depth online discussion tools in the workshops in February and beyond. If these workshops are to succeed, they will have to tap the collective intelligence of people beyond the Beltway. Any technology provider that would like to be involved is welcome!
