One year ago, you made history. One year ago, we got NYC’s Open Data law passed and gave this nation a new gold standard in government transparency.
By opening up and making the City’s data machine readable, the we will be able to build better interfaces and help grow this city into the 21st Century. Together, we will increase the effectiveness of government services and an equitable City for the future.
Today, we stand on the steps of City Hall and look to the future of municipal open data. Over the next few years, it is up to us, the developers, designers, the doers, and the thinkers to be a true partner in open government. It is up to us to be the Government for the people by the people.
Happy Birthday Local Law 11 of 2012! Here’s to a new era in Open Government.
It’s time to drink social lubricants, socialize AND get out the votes for BikeBuddy while celebrating TA’s first #BikeNYC tweetup! Join us this Saturday at The Change You Want to See and celebrate two parties…
1. BikeBuddy is a vision. Part Meetup.com / part route sharing website / part mobile app / part _______ (you fill in the blank!). More or less, it’s an idea that has to be built. Since @TransAlt has an opportunity to win $250,000 were going to use this party to get out the vote. Don’t forget to vote today!
2. #BikeNYC tweetup! Tweets ups are when a bunch of twitter users come together and socialize. On a daily basis, hundreds of New Yorkers share news, comment on each others ideas and have a running conversation all by using the 8 characters of “#BikeNYC.” This part of the party is a celebration of nurdum, mobile technology and all things 2.0! Also, don’t forget to follow @TransAlt on twitter.

Investigating the newest wave of hip-hop, Nerdcore Rising follows the godfather of the genre, MC Frontalot, on his first national tour. Beginning in South Carolina and culminating in nerd mecca - the Penny Arcade Gaming Convention in Seattle - masses of fans across the country come out to bask in the Front’s geek glory as he strives to achieve mainstream success.
Music industry notables provide insight, including music-nerd celebrities Weird Al Yankovic and Jello Biafra. Old school trailblazers like Prince Paul and contemporary hip hop aficionados like J-Live examine the legitimacy of nerdcore as a subgenre of hip hop.
