Hey all, 

In case you having seen this, I wanted to let you know about a great event happening on Saturday, May 11th from 10:30am-5pm. The event - called theRethinkingRegulation Design Challenge - brings together policy experts, techies, and regulators to use technology to do regulation in a smarter way. 

There are three pressing problems you can work on at the challenge dealing with public safety and quality of life issues: 

  • Chinatown bus regulation in NYC -- how can we ensure buses are complying with the new permit legislation being implemented? 
  • Illegal apartment conversions in NYC -- how can we empower renters to avoid renting illegal conversions and provide others with the information they would need to make similar decisions? 
  • Food price gouging in Newark, NJ -- how can we help stop the practice of food purveyors raising prices around the 1st and the 15th of the month when food stamp benefits are released to recipients? 
A member of Mayor Cory Booker's staff from Newark will be on hand to advise teams about food price gouging, and to judge solutions. 

Other judges include: 
  • Sarah Kaufman, Research Associate at the NYU Rudin Center for Transportation;
  • Suchi Sanagavarapu, the Senior Project Manager at the New York City Department Of Transportation (DOT); and 
  • Beth Noveck, former White House Deputy Chief Technology Officer and founder and director of the White House Open Government Initiative [masked]).

Hope to see you all there!
