We were recently lucky enough to host NYC’s first-ever CTO, Minerva Tantoco (@minervatweet), in conversation with BetaNYC‘s Noel Hidalgo. The civic tech community showed up strong to the sold-out event at Microsoft Research. In the video below, Minerva shares her personal path to becoming Chief Technology Officer, as well as her personal thoughts on punk culture, science fiction, and her plans for keeping New York City on the cutting edge of civic tech. We were able to capture the conversation for your viewing pleasure thanks to Joly MacFie of the Internet Society’s New York chapter.
