I was on a panel March 2018 at SXSW, talking about my work with open data, sharing this stage with the smart:
ADRIENNE SCHMOEKER, New York City Mayor’s Office of Data and Analytics
MARY TOBIN, Brownsville Partnership
ZACK BRISSON, Reboot
Sharing stories from the front lines of data impact, we will shine a light on progress and pitfalls in New York City’s quest to make city data accessible and useful to all New Yorkers. Five years after NYC’s pioneering Open Data Law was passed, open data is still often perceived as a tool for a niche community of “civic techies.” Yet new user research and tales from the trenches show how open data has the potential to help a much wider swath of city residents create impact in their communities.
