These ideas emerged as part of the discussion around Accessible Infrastructure at The People’s Roadmap Workshop – Brooklyn Edition (October 19, 2017). Use this thread to continue that discussion!

Community thoughts about Current State

  • Lack of transparency into utility use —> new pricing
  • Cable TV bundling is bullsh*t
  • What about the infrastructure that digital infra layers on? E.G. Housing

Community thoughts about Desired Future State

  • Company personalities: If company = people, and people care then company cares.

  • High barrier of entry
  • ‘Public’ records are private and not subject to FOIA-like requests (Facebook, Google, etc., data, meta-data, etc.)
  • Disconnection between public and relevant sectors

Community thoughts about Desired Future State
