For the past six months, Technical.ly has been a member of Broke in Philly, the 22-member reporting collaborative made up of newsrooms across the city that have committed to covering poverty solutions.

Some topics we’ve written about as part of our involvement:

Now, we’re asking you what we should report on next.

Tell us: What do you want us to investigate about the job market or unemployment in Philly as they relate to the innovation economy? What burning questions do you have about being broke in a city with a 25.7 percent poverty rate? What do you want to know about how the tech sector is tackling one of Philadelphia’s biggest problems (or not)?

Ask some specific Qs via the form below and we’ll pick a few and dig deep to find the answer, then share it out in a reported story; Broke in Philly partners Billy Penn, PlanPhilly, Generocity and NBC10 are doing the same. We might even open a voting round when you’ll be able to vote on which story we tackle next.
