    On The Verge: face transplants and NYC Chief Digital Officer Rachel Haot

    Share this story

    It's a very special On The Verge as we take a deeper dive into Beyond Recognition, our cover story this week on face transplants. Our science editor Katie Drummond sits down with Josh for a talk about the story from inception to reaction. Also, Nilay Patel sits down with New York City's Chief Digital Officer Rachel Haot to talk about — among less important topics like modernizing a major city in this fast-growing world — why he doesn't have FiOS yet.

    Don't forget next week is pretty busy for us — especially Monday with Apple's WWDC and the major E3 keynotes. Also the return of Top Shelf, and of course, more On The Verge. It'll be fun, join us!
