Civic Operator in Chicago, IL

Civic Operator is the ethnographic management consulting practice of Daniel X. O'Neil.

I've helped dozens of companies and organizations change their and culture, build new products, and develop effective strategies through technology.

Over my career, I've helped pioneer the fields of hyperlocal journalism, open data, open government, tech philanthropy, community technology, civic tech, user experience research, and government technology. I've served on many boards, all with a focus on tech for all.

Here's my bio, which is also where you can find more information about my career, including my product work at EveryBlock, my strategy work at Smart Chicago, and my creation of CUTGroup, a new model for engagement between technologists and the people who use tech.
