An Associated Press story by just went live: "*Flood of government data fuels rise of city apps*.
Wohlson: "Across the country, geeks are using mountains of data that city officials are dumping on the Web to create everything from smartphone tree identifiers and street sweeper alarms to neighborhood crime notifiers and apps that sound the alarm when customers enter a restaurant that got low marks on a recent inspection.
The emergence of city apps comes as a result of the rise of the open data movement in U.S. cities, or what advocates like to call Government 2.0."
The AP last covered Gov 2.0 and the open data movement in February, when they looked at how cities were crowdsourcing ideas from citizens, or "citizensourcing."
It's great to see what's happening around the country get more mainstream attention. More awareness of what's possible and available could lead to more use of the applications and thereby interest and demand for civic data.
