The Quantified City.

You can't improve what you don't measure.

And we believe NYCDataWell can help jumpstart this process. And by feeding and tapping a River of Data, all kinds of Innovations will be made that will vastly improve our daily lives.

Of course, there will be aspects of privacy and data ethics that will need to be worked out. But it shouldn't be that hard - as it is, we already surrender vast amounts of personal information to corporate giants like Google, Facebook and just about anything that's advertising supported (and we are even exposed to ads when we pay for something - witness cable TV, movies, etc.)

So why not use this same data for better, Smarter Government?
