Yi-Tan Call 253 – DIYcity – (Sumarry Version)

John Geraci has been fascinated with how technology can be used to improve city life for a long time. His most recent project,  DIYcity, is a platform atop which volunteers can create their own projects to improve cities.

DIYcity chapters have started in several cities and DIYtraffic, a crowdsourced traffic-monitoring system, is under way. So is a big rev of DIYcity’s site and capabilities. Here’s a short article.

With John, let’s discuss:

  • What aspects of DIYcity have been the most fruitful so far?
  • How are teams and projects coming together? What limitations are evident so far?
  • What are the lessons from and for other open civic and government efforts?
