State of the Digital City: Government 2.0 and its Impact on Policymaking

State of the Digital City: Government 2.0 and its Impact on PolicymakingPresented by the Wagner Policy AllianceIn 2011, Mayor Bloomberg’s office rolled out its Road Map for the Digital City, a vanguard municipal plan for increasing avenues for digital engagement, government transparency, and data accessibility for New York City residents and businesses. One year later, the City boasts hundreds of recently released data sets, dozens of apps developed through city-supported hackathons and competitions, more than 200 social media engagement channels, and GovFresh’s 2011 City of the Year award for its leadership in technology-supported democracy. Clearly, much is happening on the web—but what is the impact on the ground? How have the City’s digital initiatives affected public service? Who is engaging? And what changes will government 3.0 bring?
