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. Six 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.” Our panelists show how open data has the potential to help a wider swath of city residents fight poverty, improve lives, and create impact in their communities.
