    I first met Sid when we worked together at the White House in 1995, he is such a solid leader and visionary who is passionate about making neighborhoods better for everyone! It's great to see all of you "liking" and pinning him too :)

Effect of Pinterest on Startups and Government

  • Gaby Dow

    Look at the upper right-hand corner... this San Diego startup has been repinned over 53,000 times... talk about exciting growth!

  • Gaby Dow

    It was when I met with their CEO and we discussed the effect of Pinterest on his satartup's growth that I decided I would deliver my Gov20LA presentation using Pinterest instead of PowerPoint. The move was well-received :)

Think of an incubator as just a shell, and the end result can go either way!

  • Thomas Ciszek

    Which came first?

  • Gaby Dow

    I think it'd have to be the chick -- or successful business -- hatched first... bc if it was the cracked egg first the market / govt may not have tried again!

    It is an honor to have been asked to serve as a judge for this effort, which I believe is one important aspect of the steps San Diego can take to improve e-Gov innovation at City Hall.
