The new C-Class – article in German about Chief Data Officers in the U.S.

I wrote a short piece for the German magazine of the “Deutscher Staedte und Gemeindebund” (rough translation: German Cities and Communities Association). I talked about insights I gained when I interviewed Mark Headd, the Chief Data Officer of the City of Philadelphia and his amazing work connecting government data with audiences who want to innovate using the data. The article is written in German, but an earlier version appeared here on my blog and on NextGov.com.
