NYC's CDO & improving the City's web interfaces.

At this month’s OpenNY meetup, on Wednesday, March 16, we will collaborate with Rachel Sterne, the City’s Chief Digital Officer, to workgroup improvements to the City's Developer Policy, DataMine, NYCStat, NYCity Map, & City Calendar.

Your feedback will shape a 90-day review of City’s public digital infrastructure, Rachel’s first project as the CDO.

Doors will open at 6:30 pm for a bit of socializing. At 7 pm, the program will begin. After a brief introduction and review, we will break up into small teams. At 8 pm, we will reconvene for a report back before heading home.

To maximize our time, we are assigning homework! YES, HOMEWORK!!! Don't be scared, this is fun stuff...

1. Review the following sites and note your desires on how to change them.

2. Suggest improvements...

Remember, YOUR feedback WILL shape the 90-day report on the City’s digital progress.

    Great topics. I'd like to see round two--possibly with fewer topics. I'd like to hear if there was any feedback fromt he CDO/City.

    It was a great opportunity to meet with people across so many industries and collaborate on making open data better for NYC. Breaking into different groups was a cool idea and I think collectively we came up with some plausible solutions to the issues at hand.

    Really well-run by Noel, clear agenda and understanding of the topic. The fact that we had reps of the services we were reviewing made the whole thing much more practical and meaningful than it would otherwise have been. Best meetup yet!

    I'm afraid I'll once again be out of town, but this is a very-necessary and on-point-focused idea for a MeetUp, and will be following along. Glad to have Rachel working w/ the Forum on design & UX enhancements.
