Civic Tech News & Analysis from Civic Hall

Dave Karpf

Dave Karpf is an assistant professor in the George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs. He conducts research on the internet and organized political advocacy, and is the author of The MoveOn Effect: The Unexpected Transformation of American Political Advocacy (2012, Oxford University Press). When he writes about civic technology, he tries to play the role of “helpful critic.” He mostly focuses on the places where our proposed technologies presume a more willing government or a more uniformly engaged public than we actually have.
