Jason Hibbets is a senior community architect at Red Hat which means he is a mash-up of a community manager and project manager for Opensource.com--a publication and story-telling platform for open source communities. At night, he puts on his cape, and is a captain for the Open Raleigh Brigade, co-chair for NC Open Pass, and member of the Code for America Brigade National Advisory Committee. Follow him on Twitter: @jhibbets.
Jason is the author of a book called The foundation for an open source city--a resource for cities and communities interested in improving their government through civic technology. While writing the book, he discovered his unknown super power of building communities of passionate people.
Jason graduated from North Carolina State University and resides in Raleigh with his wife, two kids, two border collies, a flock of chickens, lots of tomato plants, and a lazy raccoon somewhere in an oak tree. In his copious spare time, he enjoys surfing, running, gardening, traveling, watching football, sampling craft beer, and participating in local government--not necessarily in that order, but close to it.
