You may recall the name, Rachel Sterne, who was featured on this blog in April 2009 when she was named one of America's most promising social entrepreneurs. We were pleased to learn that Rachel has been hired as New York City's first chief digital officer where she will be faced with improving the city's online communications. According to the New York Times, "Rachel will close her consulting practice and leave GroundReport, a Website for citizen journalism that she founded and owns, to take the job at City Hall." It will be interesting to see the ways Rachel will use social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter to improve communication between residents and the city's government.
