Hi, my name is Abhi Nemani, and I'm a fan of technology, government, and interesting ideas.

Currently, I'm building a govtech startup called EthosLabs, designed to accelerator good government through great technology. Additionally, Mayor Kevin Johnson of Sacramento has appointed me as interim Chief Innovation Officer to build out the city's budding startup sector, through venture investments, grants, and partnerships.

Before, I have served as the City of Los Angeles' first Chief Data Officer, building technology to improve the lives of the residents of our second largest city. Before, I helped launch, build, and run a non-profit called Code for America, whose interesting idea is that a government of the people, by the people, can work in the 21st Century.

Beyond that, I've been thinking about things, ranging from political philosophy and cities to data-driven policy and civic tech, and I have gotten the opportunity to travel to around the world to see first-hand how public life everywhere is changing — which makes me excited about what's ahead.

I try (my best) to write things down.

When I do, I'll post them here, along with the standard stuff: bio, talks, press mentions, etc.

For anything else, just ask: @abhinemani or abhi.nemani@gmail.com.
