For citizens this is frustrating. These frustrations are compounded by the knowledge that Governments are not early adopters of technological solutions that can both improve services and save money.  
Which is why we were super excited to interview Óli Páll Geirsson the first Chief Data Officer at the City of Reyjavik.  
Óli is on a mission to help Reykjavik City use data to improve the service it delivers to the citizens of Reykjavik.
