The city of Washington D.C. held a contest (Apps for Democracy) for developers to use data the city has compiled and create apps to help solve various problems the city faces. I LOVE this idea! The first contest resulted in 47 apps, covering everything from parking information, walking tours, and school achievement to bus locations and crime stats by neighborhood (there were quite a few crime-related apps!). The submission phase for this year’s contest ended a few days ago – I’ll be interested to see what comes out of it. [via ReadWriteWeb]
