It occurs to me that a crucial issue in how this is done
is to minimize the keeping of records on all the users.
Maybe you would like to help in that.


Hello All,

The passage of Reso. No. 669
(http://webdocs.nyccouncil.info/attachments/64798.htm), which calls for
the wiring of all new affordable housing in NYC for broadband, received
a substantial amount of press in the technology world. Here are links
to some of those stories:

* http://www.corante.com/newyork/archives/2005/03/14/affordable_and_universally_accessible_broadband_is_a_right_of_all_new_yorkers.php
* http://www.curbed.com/archives/2005/03/15/bushwick_gets_broadband.php#email
* http://www.tmcnet.com/usubmit/2005/Feb/1120406.htm

In the past few weeks, we have had some very promising discussions
with the New York City Department of Information Technology and
Telecommunications (DoITT) on making more City-owned GIS data available
to the general public. More details on this to come. To learn more
about our recent GIS hearing, read the Gotham Gazette's story on the
hearing as well as the briefing paper to the hearing.

* http://www.gothamgazette.com/article/tech/20050301/19/

* http://webdocs.nyccouncil.info/attachments/64764.htm

The following is a link to the DoITT's strategic plan for the
calendar year of 2005. Feel free to download and read.

*****

The following is a list of our upcoming hearings. Please note that
all Committee hearings are open to the general public. No RSVP is
necessary.

On Tuesday, April 19, 2005 at 1 PM, Committee Room, City Hall, the
Committee will hold an oversight entitled Review of the Integrated Human
Services Project: Update and Future Plans. The goal of the hearing is
to get an update on the progress of the system, to hear testimony about
the necessity of the system, and to understand the importance of City
government working with the nonprofit sector on this project.

Here is some information about the project from DoITT's strategic
plan referenced above:

* "This initiative is being co-led by DoITT and the Special Advisor
to the Mayor on Governance and Strategic Planning. The project's
goals include streamlining both the screening and eligibility
determination processes for applicants seeking City services, and
contract management functions within and across the City's
thirteen human service agencies. By developing the capacity for
secure communication of client, provider, and financial data among
agencies and contractors, this effort will improve the City's
ability to deliver cost-effective, efficient, and client-centered
human services."

On Monday, May 2, 2005 at 10 AM, 14th Floor Hearing Room, 250
Broadway, the Committee on Technology in Government will hold a hearing
entitled Review of the Administration's Telecommunications
Infrastructure and Economic Development Study. Last year, the New York
City Economic Development Corporation (EDC) and DoITT commissioned a
study of the telecommunications infrastructure of New York City and its
role in promoting economic growth. This study will contain
recommendations on improving New York City's telecommunications
infrastructure in order to promote economic growth. At the hearing,
there will be a discussion of whether the findings of the study are
accurate and whether the recommendations contained in the study will
improve the health of New York City businesses of all sizes, enhance the
quality of life of all New Yorkers, as well as close the digital divide
in New York City. Representatives of EDC and DoITT have been invited to
testify, along with stakeholders from the private sector,
telecommunications experts and nonprofit organizations interested in
bridging the digital divide.

On Thursday, June 2, 2005 at 1 PM, 14th Floor Hearing Room, 250
Broadway, the Committee will hold an oversight hearing on the
development of the New York City information technology (IT) industry.
More details on this hearing to come.

On Tuesday, June 21, 2005 at 1 PM, Committee Room, City Hall, the
Committee will hold an oversight hearing. Topic to be determined.

The Intelligent Community Forum Conference & Awards 2005
Building the Broadband Economy
June 13-14, 2005
Polytechnic University at MetroTech Center, Brooklyn, New York

"Building the Broadband Economy" is the 2005 edition of the Intelligent
Community Forum's annual conference and awards program taking place in
New York City. It is produced in association with Polytechnic
University's Institute for Technology & Enterprise, New York's premier
research and education hub for bridging management and innovation.

Conference Focus

At "Building the Broadband Economy," we will once again bring together
experts from across the globe to provide answers to vital questions:

1. What does it take to compete in the broadband economy?
2. How will broadband infrastructures change the communities we live
in, the businesses that employ us, and our roles as citizens?
3. Who are becoming the winners and losers in the "Digital Age?"

"Building the Broadband Economy" examines these questions and others,
including:

* What are the most important online applications that are driving
demand for broadband? How are they changing the way we live and
work, start and manage businesses, and provide government services?
* How are the world's villages, towns and cities preparing their
governments, businesses and citizens to prosper and grow in the
broadband economy?
* What can we learn from the broadband economy of the greater New
York City region, home to the single greatest concentration of
Internet capacity in America?
* How are the broadband "have nots" staking their claim to a piece
of the broadband economy, with the support of the public and
private sectors?

The Intelligent Community Forum Conference & Awards 2005

Building the Broadband Economy

June 13-14, 2005

Polytechnic University at MetroTech Center, Brooklyn, New York

   

"Building the Broadband Economy" is the 2005 edition of the Intelligent
Community Forum’s annual conference and awards program taking place in
New York City. It is produced in association with Polytechnic
University’s Institute for Technology & Enterprise, New York’s
premier research and education hub for bridging management and
innovation.



Conference Focus



At "Building the Broadband Economy," we will once again bring together
experts from across the globe to provide answers to vital questions:


  1. What does it take to compete in the broadband economy?

  2. How will broadband infrastructures change the communities we live
    in, the businesses that employ us, and our roles as citizens?

  3. Who are becoming the winners and losers in the "Digital Age?"


"Building the Broadband Economy" examines these questions and others,
including:


  • What are the most important online applications that are driving
    demand for broadband? How are they changing the way we live and work,
    start and manage businesses, and provide government services?

  • How are the world’s villages, towns and cities preparing their
    governments, businesses and citizens to prosper and grow in the
    broadband economy?

  • What can we learn from the broadband economy of the greater New
    York City region, home to the single greatest concentration of Internet
    capacity in America?

  • How are the broadband "have nots" staking their claim to a piece
    of the broadband economy, with the support of the public and private
    sectors?
