“NYC Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Chief Digital Officer Rachel Sterne today unveiled Road Map for the Digital City – a comprehensive strategy to make New York the nation’s leading digital City.” 16 May.
This amazing effort and beautifully structured and designed report sets out examples of what has been done and where New York City will be headed in the future. It’s a really fantastic mix of excellent basic web offerings, data and apps, and communication and engagement through social tools.
In fact, NYC will be partnering with social web companies like Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and Foursquare. Not only does this benefit New York City, but this is an amazing step forward for all of “digital municipal” as they work together and innovate in the civic sphere.
