Jason Hibbets is a senior community architect (a mash-up of a community manager and project manager) at Red Hat for Opensource.com—a publication and storytelling platform for open source communities. He’s the author of The Foundation for an Open Source City—a resource for cities and communities interested in improving their government through civic technology and open innovation. While writing the book, he discovered his unknown superpower of building communities of passionate people. He’s been building community for Opensource.com since 2010, the Open Organization since 2015, and the Opensource.com DevOps team since 2017. In his copious spare time, he enjoys surfing, running, gardening, traveling, watching football, sampling craft beer, and participating in local government—not necessarily in that order, but close to it. You can find him on Twitter as @jhibbets.
