Check out the video of the Reinvent Payphones Information Session held on January 23, 2013. City officials from eight agencies answered participants’ questions ranging from redesigning public space, to providing amenities in City parks, to integrating with transportation furniture. Here are some key takeaways:

  • ….
  • Think about how the city could provide new services, useful information, and communications technology while sustaining current revenues.
  •  Ensure prototypes are future-focused; consider the rapid pace of technological change.

Submit your prototype at nyc.gov/reinventpayphones before 9AM EST on February 18, 2013 and you could help shape the future of New York City’s streets. Competition judges will select up to 15 semi-finalists to present at the Reinvent Payphones demo day on Tuesday, March 5, 2013.

Google has thrown its support behind a contest that searches for ways to map out the U.S. government’s esoteric spending patterns. Called “Data Viz Challenge,” the contest has been assembled by the Eyebeam Art and Technology Center, a digital-arts collective headquartered a stone’s throw from Google’s Manhattan satellite office, and promises $5,000 to the entrant who can best “visualize how your individual federal income taxes are spent.” Winners will be announced, fittingly, on April 18—the day that tax returns are due. The data is to be sourced from WhatWePayFor.com, a site created to break down how individual tax payments are spent. Interested participants can show up at Eyebeam on Saturday for an event designed to kick things off and provide resources on behalf of Eyebeam fellows and employees of Google Creative Lab, which describes itself as “a small team that strives to re-think marketing across every kind of media - currently existing or not, with Google as its sole client.” (via Google backs tax-transparency challenge | The Social - CNET News)
