The Civic Tech Graveyard

The Civic Tech Graveyard is where we where you can visit, celebrate, and pay your respects to the projects that are no longer with us.

One of the main objectives of the Civic Tech Field Guide is to help the field’s builders and funders learn what didn’t work, so they can make and fund things that do. Which makes this page one of the most important on this site.

Some of the projects were experiments that proved a point and weren’t meant to endure. Others were fantastic, heavily funded flame-outs that ignored lessons learned by their predecessors.
