Real Politech GraphicCity & State’s #RealPolitech forum (a play on RealPolitik) will inform and encourage practical and material uses of technology in government, campaigns, media, and the industries that operate in and around these spaces. The day’s discussions will look to ground the sometimes ethereal concepts with active examples of current, existing applications and how they can be best utilized.

Joining us for this comprehensive, day-long forum will be a series of experts, public officials, media personalities and newsmakers for what promises to be a fascinating look into what’s new and what’s next in government, technology and media.

    why is it that you’re having the tech meeting on a weekday and during business hours don’t you realize that by doing it then you disenfranchise so many of us working people who would enjoy and possibly benefit by attending.

    david zelman is correct. you fools are doing these events during working hours. this is why your comany consistently gets slapped around by crains and others who know what the hell they’re doing. when your boss finally realizes that he WON’T be the next mayor of anything, will these events all of a sudden to cease to exist??

    I’m at work and I’m live-streaming this. Come on you guys, get with the times. If you are going to pay attention to technology, you might as well actually use it from time to time.

    I’m confused by the comments below. When else do you hold a full day forum except during the day? For those of us who are busy, thankfully the NYLS webcast team will surely publish an archive,
