New York City is leading numerous technology and entrepreneurially-driven initiatives, from the Mayor's "Digital City of the Future" vision, to the Open Data Law, and the new CornellNYC Tech campus on Roosevelt Island. NYC intends to be the first "City in the Linked Open Data cloud."
This presentation sets the scene for the conference by putting all of these plans into context, and how the industries of New York can participate in this quintessentially data-driven future.
Focused on an agenda of open government and innovation, Andrew Nicklin manages New York City’s Open Data portal at NYC Open Data. His other efforts include raising emergency awareness through social media, open source technologies, and cloud computing strategy. Andrew has worked for the City of New York since the beginning his government technology career in 1995.
