The Civic Tech Field Guide is a living database of tools, projects, and organisations worldwide.
Of the roughly 800 initiatives covered, about 50 have been discontinued. Guide co-creators Matt Stempeck and Micah Sifry describe common reasons that Civic Tech projects fail, and then engage the audience in an interactive conversation about the major modes of failure.

Most Civic Tech products fail to reach the public for whom we build. Matt Stempeck and Micah L. Sifry researched available impact metrics for civic engagement technologies — and this was the sobering conclusion.
While impact analysis can be highly challenging, important measures can be found. Here’s a clue: it’s not always about the metrics.
TICTeC supports the mission of the non-profit mySociety by bringing together practitioners, commentators, academics and funders to debate, network, and share research and knowledge in the civic tech field.
