Powering Smart and Connected Communities
Rural areas with a distillery are stepping up to the challenge. Local Distillery in Hoodsport is making hand sanitizer for critical services teams.
Donations to Mason County non-profits will continue, just contact us. Until we re-open, our hand sanitizer will be available at the Hoodsport grocery, and the Hama Hama Oyster Co store. And look for safe outdoor hand sanitizer pop-ups! Plans are in the works.

Transportation and energy upgrades are expected to be the big drivers of smart city spending over the next decade. Why it matters: Global spending on smart city projects will reach nearly $124 billion this year, an 18% increase over 2019, according to IDC, a market research firm.
UC San Diego’s student government has joined other community voices pushing back against the city’s use of camera-equipped street lights, and has submitted a list of demands its members hope will increase transparency about the technology’s impact on privacy and public safety.

Register here.The Global Cities Team Challenge (GCTC) Global Tech Jam brings together research institutions, private sector companies, grass roots organizations, and public entities to explore deployment of data-driven decisions and to benefit communities. This international consortium will discuss deploying emerging technologies to improve infrastructure and create conditions
We’re on track in the Data Supercluster for an exciting Expo event. Check out the details at the NIST GCTC Expo web site and sign up. Its free to attend, but you must register.
In America, 40% of food is wasted. This is an astounding number. The Data Supercluster is examining how today’s waste stream management build environment might share data relevant to food waste. Is enough data available but hidden today? Can inferences from grocery and restaurant purchases drive data models that support food waste metrology?
A call for an Action Cluster to investigate methods to measure food waste, take action to mitigate food waste and measure results will be announced soon. To create your own Action Cluster in the Data Supercluster, use the NIST GCTC Action Cluster worksheet/application form.
WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the the eyes of chef-heroes like Anthony Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system.

The NIST GCTC Data Supercluster group is working to advance the use of urban data by developing and sharing best practices and produce blueprints for the design, deployment and governance of urban data platforms and data exchanges and governance and , as well as deployed proofs by facilitating sharing collaboration among membership teams and stakeholders further practical application of civic data.
The Data Supercluster addresses critical issues on data platforms. Stakeholders have identified licensing, cyber-security, encouraging innovation, understanding use-cases and proofs of concepts as importantpriority areas of study and sharing. This build off of a In 2017 NISt convening with, the cities of Kansas City, Missouri and Bellevue, Washington teamed withand 20 other cities and several corporate partners to focusdiscuss on Data urban data, data visualization and data hosting platforms.
In early 2018, these efforts efforts of that area, and a new were formalized into a new Data Governance and Exchange Superclustereffort were merged. The scope of the Data Supercluster recently has expanded to embraced work being done at the University of Southern California, City of Coral Gables among others.
The SuperCluster is currently documenting the common experiences among Action Clusters that span Transportation, Public Safety, Utility, Wireless, Ag and Rural, and Education through this website, the Data Supercluster Google Group, face to face and online meetings.
The Data supercluster is open to all stakeholders in GCTC Smart City projects. Innovation using Open Data and networking often experience friction in deployment and operation.
