Luke Bacon makes things a little easier for people who want to improve their society as a designer, developer, and all-round hacker at the OpenAustralia Foundation. He joined the team in 2014 to design They Vote For You and make your MP’s record of votes in parliament clearer and more useful to you.
Luke also co-founded the independent journalism and open source archival project Detention Logs. The project was launched with The Guardian, New Matilda, and The Global Mail to publish thousands of pages of evidence of the conditions in Australia’s immigration detention facilities.
