It's snowing and school is two hours late. Wouldn't it be nice if you knew exactly when the bus was arriving so your kids didn't have to stand in the cold? There's an app for that, thanks to the City of Boston's incubator program.
On Aug. 8 at 1 p.m. ET, ICMA will host a web conference where you get to meet Chris Osgood, founder and co-chair of the Mayor's Office of New Urban Mechanics in Boston. Osgood, along with Christopher Thomas, director of government markets at Esri, will share the successful strategies that Boston implemented to better engage its citizens and make their everyday lives easier.
Osgood, a 2011 Governing magazine Public Official of the Year, will show how technology your city probably already owns can be combined with a little creativity to help local government impact the lives of citizens in a profound way.
