Open Data Delay
November 7, 2011 Leave a comment
I just got back from a trip to West Virginia that involved lots of fabulous people and no Internet access, so today’s post on communicating bus timing will be delayed for a day or two. What I can give you, however, is something someone else made. Streetfilms has a fabulous video on sharing transit data in an open and standardized way and the wonderful things that can come of it. Golden Gate Transit doesn’t have open data, at least not that I could see, and that dramatically hinders the capability of the entrepreneurial and tech-savvy to create customer-centered applications the agency may not even think of. This deserves more rumination, but the mini-documentary can speak for itself.
