City as a Service

NYC Open Data Week marks the anniversary of the City’s first Open Data Law, signed March 2012, requiring that all public data be made freely available on a single web portal. Open Data Week is a collaboration of NYC Open Data, BetaNYC and many other civic tech and data communities making our city more open.

The Open City

For the kick-off event for NYC Open Data Week, we talked consent and regulation on data collection in our public spaces at the NYC School of Data with (left to right): Shin-pei Tsay, Executive Director of Gehl Institute; Jennifer Ding, Solutions Engineer at Numina; Stephen Larrick, Head of City Relations at Stae; and Georgia Bullen, Executive Director of Simply Secure.
