This week, Scot goes to San Francisco to chat with Jason Putorti, a well-known and respected interface designer & civic technology innovator.  Several of his past projects have been aimed at solving issues in civic engagement, but his latest one is creating a nationwide buzz.  

 

Resistbot (text RESIST to 50409) connects you to your elected officials as soon as the mood strikes.  It’s different from Jason’s past civic tech projects, in that there’s no app or specialized interface - Resistbot works on whatever SMS chat app you already have on your phone.  For bonus points, it works on Facebook Messenger and Amazon’s Alexa-enabled devices too.
