The Chung Report highlights Open Wichita, a community organization focused on using technology to drive civic change.
Open Wichita works in conjunction with the City of Wichita and Wichita Police by pushing for more data to be published from government servers, allowing more people to see the data and then use it to conjure innovative solutions for Wichita's future.
