Posted November 4, 2010

Pete Fecteau ( ??07, Digital Media) has been selected as a 2011 Code for America Fellow. Code for America was founded to help the brightest minds of the Web 2.0 generation transform city governments.

Starting in January, Fecteau and his fellow 19 Fellows will be challenged to not only build innovative apps for each of their cities, but also become the leaders of the ongoing movement to make government more open and efficient.

Fecteau works mainly in the interactive design and development field creating and administering websites for a major non-profit organization. He has experience designing numerous social networks, apps, and templates using open source software. Fecteau has a passion for social change and has been working to make an impact in his community using his skills and talents. His latest ??off the grid ? project involved creating a giant mosaic of Dr. Martin Luther King using 4,242 Rubik ??s Cubes that was displayed in ArtPrize. He hopes to one day create a network for people to meet together both virtually and physically for community activism.
