TransparencyCorps Meets New York


After the success of our earmark campaigns, I’ve been working with the enthusiastic folks at OpenGovernmentNYC to help them launch a campaign of their own. Recently, they obtained from the NYC government a 169-page paper copy of the 1993 NYC Data Directory, bulk scanned it into a big PDF, and asked for help in digitizing it.

Visit the campaign and read Philip Ashlock’s blog post to read a little more about why OpenGovNYC wants your help:

Update the NYC Public Data Directory

And if you’re around NYC, consider going to one of their meetups – these guys are for serious.
