It can even redefine what it means to participate in a modern democracy. At DataSF, we seek to empower the use of data from the City and County of San Francisco across a spectrum of uses. I’ll discuss ways we are encouraging people to “gather around the data table” to collectively understand and address some of our most pressing challenges. And I’ll highlight projects and initiatives that demonstrate this, including:

  • How we’re beginning to work with existing community institutions to make use of the City’s many open data assets
