On June 21, 2010 at 10:00am on the 16th Floor Public Hearing Room of 250 Broadway, New York, NY (across from City Hall), the New York City Council Committee on Technology will hold a hearing on Introduction 029-2010, seeking to establish open data standards for all city agencies.  Int. 029-2010 (formerly Intro. 991-2009) aims to increase government transparency and facilitate easier access to public data.

 

Beyond the ‘good government’ benefits of this legislation, the bill will also unlock City data to enable web developers and entrepreneurs to interact with City government in new and unforeseen ways.  Data published under this legislation will be readable by any computer device, including laptops and phones, for innovative developments.  This Gov 2.0 inspired transparency legislation targets application developers, startups, small businesses, and academics with the ultimate goal of strengthening the connection between government and the public, while re-energizing the small business-tech sectors  and highlighting New York’s digital future.
