New York City as a Platform: A model for Sydney?

I heart Sydney.

I want it to constantly evolve into a better place for all its citizens and visitors.

That’s why I was most excited to hear what New York’s Chief Digital Officer, Rachel Sterne, had to say about what she and her team are doing to build New York as a Platform.

Essentially, they are creating a citizen-centric platform with a whole range of applications that can transfer and translate public engagements in the city with the city’s government and institutions.

Well worth a watch:
