  • we created the BigOpenData meetup the day after the Open Data Law’s anniversary, and already, there are more than 120 members!
  • and of course, we’re busily building pediacities – our Big Open Data platform, for launch this summer.

And just this weekend, a must-read eBook – Tech and the City: The Making of New York’s Startup Community was released.  It details how and why NYC will be, not only the high-tech hub it already is, but also, the Digital City of our Future.

We (heart) NYC!!!
