larger complex systems that have major implications
for society. There is a need to understand the
influence and directions of technology and

The Information Technology Indicator Project is a two phase project to measure the impact of information technology on the health and vitality of our city. This paper presents the results of the first development phase, a community constructed set of indicators. Measurements for these will be gathered and presented in the second phase. The City of Seattle Department of Information Technology and the City’s Citizens Telecommunication and Technology Advisory Board (CTTAB) guided the development of these indicators with significant participation from a wide range of interested residents, including technology, education and community leaders.
The initial indicators project was developed in cooperation with Sustainable Seattle. Additional assistance for the public participation was provided by Progress Project of the Evans School of Public Affairs and the Glaser Progress Foundation and Seattle Community Network.
