Friends,

If you haven't seen today's New York World article you should. Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, our 'god mother', is actively taking our work and putting into the hand of Community Boards. On Monday morning, a handful of us, OpenPlans, Pediacities, CUNY, and BetaNYC, have been asked to present to the Manhattan Borough Board. 

If your work hasn't been underscored enough, our campaign to move beyond transparency is one of those moments. 

Please join us next week as we dive into NYC's Land Use data < http://www.meetup.com/betanyc/events/155118392/ >.

Then, 12 Feb for NYC 311 data < http://www.meetup.com/betanyc/events/158247492/ >

Also, save 22/23 Feb for CodeAcrossNYC < http://www.meetup.com/betanyc/events/155118982/ >

Warm regards,
Noel
