What we're about
NYC is a first mover in combining the power of technology and the voice of the people to affect changes that matter. And yet as public policy wonks in startup alley, we were surprised by the lack of active conversation about the intersection of public policy and technology. While New York City attempts to bring governance to the 21st century with initiatives like Open Data, why is there little chatter amongst the impacted constituents about these initiatives? ‘Let's change that’ we said, and hence the birth of this meetup series.
