The Public Interest Tech Webring is a collection of blogs dedicated to civic tech, public interest tech, government tech policy, and similar topics.

If you post about the topics above, we'd love for you to join our webring! We do ask that you meet the following requirements:

  • The site must be a personal site, not for a business. If you’ve got your own consulting company or a book, that’s ok.
  • The primary content must be free and accessible. You may not require a user to login, create an account, or pay to view your posts.
  • You must display the webring banner on your blog, preferably in the header or footer of each page.

Additionally, we strongly recommend that your blog have an RSS feed. If it does, we'll include it in our OPML file and include your content in our recent posts list.

To join the webring, please open a request to add a new site through GitHub issues.

After you’re approved, you’ll need to add the webring code to your website:
