Web Services Competition : Show us a better way

The competition described in blogstats’ post  ‘Show us … APIs‘ closed on 30 September.

All submitted ideas are listed here.

Votes can still be registered on a special website where the actual ranking is shown.

A first overview made by the Guardian shows a big interest for local information:

‘Again and again, what people are asking for is better internet access to things going on around them – schools, nurseries, parks, planning applications, jobs, air quality, the local recycling centre (with webcams!), council tax band calculation, the green-ness of your street; and on and on.

It’s unsurprising, of course; we all live locally, not nationally, and so it’s local things we want to know about. But that is clearly where local councils aren’t doing it right.’
