This may already be underway in many municipalities. Certainly on a small scale it is happening all over.
But I have been wondering if there is a City who views their data as the ultimate revenue resource...and has a comprehensive plan to expose the data (responsibly of course) and work with private sector partners to develop useful apps with the data. I know that cities are doing things like allowing use of bus route info etc., to create useful apps....but is there any city who views that data resource as a huge revenue generator, and one where the heavy lifting of development is passed to private, rather than burning up city resources, which are scant, and (usually!) (sometimes!) not always the most plugged-in or forward-thinking. Hm?
