    a potentially useful session: the intersection of MSM strategy and social media/online organizing. Both have public components but often different audiences. How do you coordinate these appropriately (or how much do they need to be coordinated) and what are red flags/past experiences to look out for or avoid?

    Thinking of this most from a messaging and strategy angle.

    They will be talking about what NYC and other cities are doing with their data, how citizens and tech companies are using it, and what the future holds.
