關於

g0v.tw 共同發起人之一,平常為一個普通的軟體工程師與網頁開發者,愛好登山與攝影活動。2012年政府推出了經濟動能提升方案的廣告,對其中不對稱、不透明的心態不滿,進而對政府施政的效率及方針產生了質疑,因而與朋友一同發起了 g0v.tw ,在 2012年12月1日首次召開「第零次動員戡亂黑客松」,人數超乎預期,社群正式運作。

g0v.tw 是一個推動資訊透明化的社群,致力於開發公民參與社會的資訊平台與工具。將 gov 以「零」替代成為 g0v,從零重新思考政府的角色,也是代表數位原生世代從 0 與 1 世界的視野。g0v.tw 以開放原始碼的精神為基底,關心言論自由、資訊開放,寫程式提供公民容易使用的資訊服務。資訊的透明化能幫助公民更確實了解政府運作、更快速了解議題,不被媒體壟斷,也才可有效監督政府,化為參與行動最終深化民主體質。


Kirby Wu is one of the co-founders of g0v.tw. He is a software engineer and web developer who loves hiking and photography.

In 2012, when the government released an advertisement promoting a new economic initiative, Kirby was dissatisfied with the government’s vague and unclear messages. Frustrated with government’s inefficiency and inability to execute policies, he and his friends founded g0v.tw. In December of the same year, the organization launched its first event, named “g0v.tw hackath0n" which attracted more than expected number of participants.

g0v.tw is an online community that advocates information transparency, focusing on developing information platform and tools for the citizens to participate in our society. Substituting the “o" with “0″ in gov, the new “g0v" not only stands for rethinking the role that the government plays from the bottom up, but also represents the world view of 0 and 1 in the digital natives generation.

g0v.tw is a platform that is based on open-source spirit which cares about speech freedom and information openness. In addition, it also writes computer codes for the ease of use of information services for the citizens. Information transparency can help the citizens understand its government operation and subjects under discussion more easily and clearly. Thus, information would not be solely controlled by the media and government supervision by its citizens can then be made more effectively. This information-transparency-enabled understanding can be transformed into real action and ultimately strengthen our democratic literacy.
