Tom Steinberg

Tom Steinberg is the founder and director of mySociety, a non-profit, open source organisation that runs many of the best-known democracy websites in the UK. These include the Parliamentary transparency website TheyWorkForYou and the somewhat self-explanatory FixMyStreet. mySociety’s missions are to build websites which give people simple, tangible benefits in the democratic and community aspects of their lives, and which teach the public and voluntary sector how they can use technology better to help citizens. Tom’s role in mySociety is mainly to go to conferences, come up with ideas for websites, and buy our staff and lovely volunteers as much food as they can eat.

By trade Tom was a policy analyst and general wonk who mainly cut his teeth at the Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit from 2001 to 2003. He grew up in Oxford, and lives in Whitechapel, East London
