NYC’s “Road Map For The Digital City” Report

Last week I had the opportunity to attend Business Insider’s 2011 StartUp event in NYC.  One of the  guest speakers was Mayor Bloomberg’s Chief Digital Officer (CDO) Rachel Sterne who announced the upcoming release of an in-depth  recommendation for making  New York the most digitally progressive city in the world.  For a room full of entrepreneurs in a city that just surpassed Boston in venture capital investment, this was particularly relevant. The report,  titled “The Digital City was released today.  I’ve included a couple of top line bullets below.

  • The city has partnered with Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and Tumblr to serve as “one-stop shops” for city news
  • The city has plans to continue unlocking access to public information for use in open source applications and tools and plans to increase access to Wi-Fi networks  in parks and public areas
