NYC Now Has A Chief Digital Officer

We're always ahead of the curve, huh? Enter Rachel Sterne, NYC's first CDO, or "Chief Digital Officer." And, get this, she's only 27—just in case you need a kick in the ass career-wise. Her resume includes the CEO title of crowdsourcing news website GroundReport, a teaching position at Columbia Business school, and a vibrant Twitter account. Besides being a regulation hottie, Sterne's new duties will include "leveraging the vast potential of the City's independent and entrepreneurial tech communities," as well as mining "public-private partnerships that the City could implement in the digital realm." How much do you wanna bet this gal will be in D.C. before she's 30?
