"Apps Are Not The Answer"
Justin Elszasz (http://twitter.com/thetrainingset), curator of the website The Training Set (http://www.thetrainingset.com/), will discuss his approach to using city open data as a means of dialogue rather than an opportunity for technology development.
His work at The Training Set has engaged city officials and journalists in order to address policy, problem-solving, and decision-making. Justin will share examples of his work, as well as some reminders of the principles that should guide problem-solving, applied science, and engineering.
