#205: Ben Scheirman (part 2)


Today we’re joined again by Ben Scheirman, who leads the team that builds the 5 Calls iOS app that encourages its users to engage with their elected representatives. Today we talk about measuring what’s really important, why 5 Calls is careful with its use of analytics, and using technical skills as a form of activism.
