ReinventPhones Demo day was sold out, so the nycdatawell team watched via quirky.com/live.
Looking at the quirky.com livestreaming counter, there were several hundred people watching remotely.
Once again, NYC is blazing the trail! Reminiscent of the ground-breaking polihack last year when DoITT used a wiki to get feedback on its landmark Open Data Policy, the City doesn’t hesitate to use unconventional digital means to reach out to the City and beyond.
And the winning submissions are amazing! The geek in me loves the sensory capabilities of Windchimes, but the aspiring designer in me (some of Ecco ID’s design sensibilities rubbed off) love Beacon’s polish.
We can’t wait to see NYC’s Reinvented Payphone!
