Technology, Government Innovation, and Open Data

Open Data and the Digital Divide

I had the pleasure recently of taking part in a series on WHYY’s Radio Times focusing on Philadelphia Innovators.

I got a chance to talk about what the City of Philadelphia is doing to release more open data to technologist, entrepreneurs and researchers in an effort to spur innovation.

Host Maiken Scott led a great discussion that also included Maria Walker from the Freedom Rings Partnership, and Juliana Reyes from Technically Philly.

About Me

I am the former Chief Data Officer for the City of Philadelphia. I also served as Director of Government Relations at Code for America, and as Director of the State of Delaware’s Government Information Center. For about six years, I served in the General Services Administration’s Technology Transformation Services (TTS), and helped pioneer their work with state and local governments. I also led platform evangelism efforts for TTS’ cloud platform, which supports over 30 critical federal agency systems.
