Team members include Evgeniy Agaev, Sidnee Bell, Tharun Ekambaram, Gabriela Martin, and Brendan O’Mara as well as 5th grader Anya Kureshi.

Mayor Adler applauded the true DI spirit: - "we need completely new ideas, even the weird ideas Austin is famous for — ideas you get when you mix artists, tech and business and nonprofit leaders and activists ... Inclusion, innovation and intentional improvisation are how we use Austin’s people and culture to build a big, weird, exceptional city."
