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 Mayorâ€™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 Cityâ€™s quest to make city data accessible and useful to all New Yorkers. Five years after NYCâ€™s pioneering Open Data Law was passed, open data is still often perceived as a tool for a niche community of â€œcivic techies.â€ 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.
