On May 2 2013 New York Technology Council (NYTECH) and the CUNY Institute for Software Design and Development (CISDD) presented ‘Trends in Database Technologies‘ at CUNY Graduate Center NYC. Over the last few years we’ve seen a range of NoSQL stores from MongoDB to Cassandra to Neo4j break the traditional dominance of relational databases. In this talk hackNY Evangelist Peter Bell discusses the evolving use cases for the four main types of NoSQL data stores and then looks at the next big thing in databases – immutable data stores like diatomic.

On Thursday October 11 2012 the New York Technology Council and ISOC-NY hosted author Andrew Blum discussing his book Tubes: A Journey to the Center of the Internet. Andrew’s book, prompted when his Internet was disconnected by a squirrel, accessibly examines the raw physical infrastructure of the network, and the people who put and hold it together. Video is below.
One point he made in the talk was that the only people that wouldn’t give him access to their inner workings were Google. Within days after the talk Google announced a new datacenter info website including a street-view walk-through their Lenoir NC data-center.
New York Technology Council hosted David Weinberger discussing topics from his new book, “Too Big to Know: Rethinking Knowledge Now That the Facts Aren’t the Facts, Experts Are Everywhere, and the Smartest Person in the Room Is the Room.” (Basic Books).

On January 9, 2012 at Google NYC, the New York Technology Council presented a “Cutting-Edge Technology Showcase” to demonstrate “awe-inspiring technologies available today”. These included augmented reality games, body-imaging health applications, instant language translation and object recognition in cellphones, and on-demand 3D printed product marketing.
On Wednesday January 25 2012 the New York Technology Council will host author David Weinberger to discuss aspects of his new book, “Too Big to Know: Rethinking Knowledge Now That the Facts Aren’t the Facts, Experts Are Everywhere, and the Smartest Person in the Room Is the Room.” David is co-author of the best-seller The Cluetrain Manifesto, which Information Week called the most important business book since Tom Peter’s In Search of Excellence. He is also the author of the critically-acclaimed Small Pieces Loosely Joined: A Unified Theory of the Web and Everything Is Miscellaneous: The Power of the New Digital Disorder.
David is currently a senior researcher at Harvard Law’s Berkman Center for the Internet & Society, Co-Director of the Harvard Library Innovation Lab at Harvard Law School, and is a Franklin Fellow at the United States State Department. He is a board member of OneWebDay.
