HILARY MASON

I believe technology should give us superpowers. I’m the Chief Scientist at bitly, where we study attention on the internet in realtime, doing a mix of research, exploration, and engineering. I co-founded HackNY, a non-profit that helps talented engineering students find their way into the startup community of creative technologists in New York City. I’m an enthusiastic member of the larger conspiracy to evolve the emerging discipline of data science.

Hope to see you there!
