About the Open NY Event:
Representatives from the advocacy group Reinvent Albany (http://reinventalbany.org) will talk about the NYC Transparency Working Group (nycTWC). This group works with New York's largest civic and civil liberties groups and leading technologists to use technology to open up NYC Government. The NYC-TWG seeks to make New York City’s digital data easily available and usable by the public, promote economic development, and technological innovation. We will also discuss the Cuomo Adminstration's campaign pledge to create "Open NY" a digital transparency and participation initiative.
About the Host: NWCU
This event is part of NWCU (http://u.nwc.co/uopenny), community-powered learning driven entirely by member participation. NWCU is a curated collection of classes, workshops, Meetup groups, and hackathons, all sharing one core common goal: help existing and aspiring independents build, learn, and share with one another, so more people can lead better, happier lives working for themselves.
NWCU is made possible by amazing supporters of independents and innovation: Google (http://u.nwc.co/gopenny) & New Work City (http://u.nwc.co/nwcony).
