Timely Information for Citizens – half time score
23rd July 2009
It’s probably time you had an update on where Digital Birmingham has got to with the Timely Information for Citizens project we announced back in April. As it happens I gave a presentation on the subject to a room full of representatives from other city councils yesterday. There’s a post over at the Improvement and Development Agency website which I was impressed to see had gone up within a couple of hours of me finishing my talk. The video below gives you some idea where we’re at with the project:
In short we’re halfway to completion. We’re out consulting citizens and raising awareness of social media & data-mashing (the story of which is being told at the excellent Be Vocal website). We soon hope to commission some demonstrator projects based on the issues that arise. Out of context the presentation below won’t tell you much but it does outline why I think Birmingham is an excellent place to be making this project happen.
