Henare Degan

Henare is a civic and democracy hacker at the OpenAustralia Foundation, a pioneering charity whose vision is to transform democracy in Australia. The websites they create have been used as the foundation for some of Australia’s best data journalism projects, including those created by The Global Mail for their Powerhouse political investigation and analysis site. Despite appearances he spends more time decoding government jargon into plain language than writing software. In his spare time he has also been known to be the hacker in a few Hacks/Hackers relationships.
