Newsom tracker: Open data event and more

Even as a lame-duck mayor, Gavin Newsom is still keeping busy in that ceremonial sort of way.

On Thursday, Newsom is making an appearance at three events tomorrow, starting with the signing of landmark open data legislation at 1 p.m. at City Hall. An hour later, he will celebrate the grand opening of Nektar Therapeutics Headquarters in Mission Bay and announce new public-private biotech initiative. Later that night, the mayor will join the Convention and Visitors Bureau to launch holiday local shopping incentive program and light Market Street holiday snowflakes.
