Comms update

Over the last year, we have started a handful of discussion lists. These were experiments in community. One year later, we are deploying talk.beta.nyc as NYC’s online home to civic tech, open data, open gov, and smart communities.

As a member of our existing CROW working group, we are inviting you to join us.

NYPL Civic Hack Event & Code Across 2015

Also, this weekend we are kicking off the next phase in the workgroup. By Friday, we are promised a three month data dump. We will use this data at the NYPL’s civic hack data day and at Code Across NYC 2015.

Next steps

At both events, @jqnatividad, Mikael, and I will share the schema, and spearhead the development of a parser.

Our long term goal is to have this parser live WITHIN the halls of DCAS. Also, it looks like DCAS will start to capture dates and locations. THIS IS A HUGE WIN. By the anniversary of the law, we will start to have clean data and location data.

Join us as we kick off a new year and a new milestone!

Nice! I was going to ask if this were going to replace all the current google groups.
