As you may have guessed, GovTribe loves us some open government data. We use a whole heap of it, combined with proprietary code to drive our iPhone app hōrd. Without open government data, who knows what we would be doing. As avid open data miners, we are stoked to be exhibiting on September 10 at the 2013 Data Transparency Conference.

Nate Nash / Aug 7, 2013

For those of you keeping score at home, it has indeed been quite a while since last you heard from the GovTribe team. Not to fear, we have been working hard on our latest release: hōrd version 2.0.

FedScoop reviews hōrd

Nate Nash / Apr 18, 2013

Luke Fretwell at took the time to post an overview of hōrd. We are fans of FedScoop and highly recommend it. And not just because they wrote something about us. :)

As some of you may know, the founders of GovTribe spent a good chunk of their professional lives consulting for Deloitte. In fact, some of our experiences there helped to shape the vision for what GovTribe is today. We keep in frequent contact with our former colleagues as many of them have transitioned into current users of hōrd. Rodrigo Ortiz, a Specialist Leader in Deloitte's Federal Government Practice had this to say about hōrd.

The folks at The Open Data Institute were kind enough to let our CEO ramble a bit on their blog. As you know we are a big fan of open data and ODI is one of the major advocates in this space. Take a look and enjoy!

​Have a look at the (cursory) review of hōrd by Marty Herbert on his Government Contracts Blog. Our favorite line:

We are proud to announce that our 1.1.0 release of hōrd is live in the App Store, filled with 10 years of DOS and MCC data. Additionally, we rolled a few UI tweaks, some performance improvements, and the ever-popular bug fixes. Give it a go an let us know what you think. More agencies coming soon!

Movin' on up the stack

Nate Nash / Feb 14, 2013

A friend of mine passed along an interesting blog post by Chris Dixon - notable internet technologist and entrepreneur. The post is about the process of technological revolution, and how it occurs in cycles of installation and deployment. Within those macro phases are iterations of entrepreneurial activity moving further up the stack as technologies mature and enjoy mass adoption.
