1 Introduction

“Civic technology - technology (mainly information technology) that’s spurring civic engagement to participate in public good development, enhancing citizen communications, improving government infrastructure, or generally making national and local governments more effective.[1][2] It encompasses civic applications, platforms supporting government bodies and institutions and other software enabling those goals.” (Wikipedia, Aug 19, 2014)

Civic technology as well as citizen science are part of what could be called Citizen+X.
