By Colin Daileda2014-01-01 18:30:39 UTC With the departure of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the city's tech industry loses its most powerful public persona. Replacing him is Bill de Blasio, the former city public advocate who campaigned with a platform that appealed to the everyman, and someone Silicon Alley has greeted with cautious optimism. The new mayor has a robust tech sector plan on paper—one with a big focus on building more of a pipeline between local universities and startup jobs—and he's become something of a crusader for broadband throughout the big apple. But unlike his predecessor, he is unlikely to put the growth of New York City's tech scene at the top of his priority list. He's also expressed some concern over how to regulate companies such as Uber, the taxi-finding app, that disrupt traditional businesses in the city, and he seems unlikely to fill the role of chief digital officer, a position Bloomberg created partly to liaison between Silicon … [Read more...] about How Will New York City’s Tech Industry Fare Under Mayor de Blasio?
New York City is in the middle of a transportation nervous breakdown. Never before have city dwellers had so many options for getting around — subway, bus, bike, ferry, taxi, and every sharing app under the sun — and never have commutes been so hellacious. In the midst of all this chaos comes the Ford Motor Company, tossing one more transit option onto the pile in the hopes that it will help make the simple act of getting from Point A to Point B a little less suicide-inducing. Starting soon, Ford is launching its on-demand shuttle bus service Chariot in New York City. The self-described microtransit service will start out in preplanned service areas in Manhattan and Brooklyn, eventually adding routes in additional neighborhoods based on customer crowdsourcing. It’s not a new idea — Via, an app-based communal bus service, has been operating in the city since 2015 — but Chariot has high hopes that its approach to ride-sharing will catch on. Chariot first … [Read more...] about Can Ford fix New York City’s transportation crisis with a crowdsourced shuttle bus?
