At places like Transparency Camp, we're glimpsing the emergence of a new culture, one that isn't inherently out to "Fight the Man" or disassociate itself from the mainstream of society, but that is aimed at making democracy and government work better. For the fun of it, you might say that this counterculture is a "count culture." It's powered by our ability to count everything (data); our ability to publish to the web (what you say can count); and a desire to make sure that everyone counts as full members of society.
Matthew Hall, a political science student from Southwestern University in Texas, said, "In political science, we study what's wrong with government, not how to fix it. Here we're looking at ways to fix it."
