When I discovered that on my Android phone I could obtain Google Maps point-to-point, "how to get there" information and that I could specify that I wanted to know "how to get there" using the HSR, my first thought was, "My God, the HSR is really onto something here. How progressive, how useful, how great that is. Thank you, HSR, for doing this." Maybe it isn't them, I see, but the more the city can do with its various forms of data to enable that kind of functionality, the better. Aside from issues of how the city will allocate resources to make this happen, I can't see why there would be any debate over whether the "Open Source City" model is beneficial. What exactly could the downside possibly be?

Maybe Bob Young will kick in some funds to help us make this happen. The open source model has been pretty beneficial for him.
