The state senate in Albany was in a bit of a shambles Monday. So instead of speaking in-person at the Personal Democracy Forum as planned, NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg used Skype to make his keynote address. “Through the miracles of modern communication, we’re essentially together,” Bloomberg commented to the audience at the Frederick P. Rose auditorium here in midtown Manhattan. He then spoke about how New York is using the assets of the digital age to make more information available to the city’s residents—something that Bloomberg can pitch well, considering he made a fortune as the founder of the business news and information company that bears his name. Bloomberg’s new initiatives include Skype and Twitter accounts for NYC 311, the city’s information hotline that Bloomberg launched several years ago
