2014 fellow Maksim Pecherskiy became chief data officer for the City of San Diego, one of many technologists now moving into government roles to tackle important problems and bring fresh ideas on using technology.
I'm looking forward to working with my colleagues at the City, as well as the technology, education, and civic communities in San Diego to help harness the power of data and technology for positive change.
