Code for America
« on: November 02, 2010, 06:09 PM »
Have you guys read about the Code for America initiative?  I wonder if DC could do something like this, on a smaller scale (no clear concept here, just a fuzzy idea).

Five American cities have been selected for a random act of kindness from software developers. Boston, Boulder, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Seattle will all receive free web and/or mobile apps to help administer government and serve citizens

Hmmmmm, strange to think that cities with $Billion budgets have to get freebie web sites.

Weird how stuff works. If you want to bring a city to its knees you don't need explosives. Just get a bunch of "terrorists" to go around putting quarters in parking meters before they expire.  The loss of revenue will likely cripple the municipality.  ;)
