Our researcher Sarah Kaufman presented at last week’s DataGotham conference/celebration of big data in New York City, giving a lightning talk about open transportation data’s benefits, background and future. The event was hosted at the Tribeca Rooftop, and the following day at NYU’s Stern School of Business. Sarah spoke alongside data gurus from Foursquare, Newsweek, bit.ly and the CIA, and advocated for the continued opening of transportation data. The talk was related to her guide to opening transportation data, posted over the summer, which you can read here.
