Not only does Mayor Michael Bloomberg get the Internet, he practically conceived it. Rachel Sternberg Haot, the city’s first digital officer, told Crain’s New York Business, his engineering background helped him invent the Bloomberg terminal. In the early days, if there was a connection problem, he’d have to fly to Chicago and solder wires together in a closet. “He’s also incredibly focused on customer service,” she told Crain’s, “That all makes for someone who is going to support innovation that can serve New Yorkers.”
