Local governments getting jiggy with App devs

WOW. I think I just had my faith in humanity restored a little. It seems that some local governments actually have a clue. Three major US metros are making information about the current state of their transit systems freely available for use by App developers. One even going as far as offering a $15K prize!

It’s nice to see government encouraging the free use of public information for a change instead of putting up endless obstacles to anyone who wants access.

Somebody pinch me….
