Opening access to information could bring significant benefits to citizens services. Focus Washington TechView spoke with the city of San Francisco chief information officer Chris Vein who explains us how his city is developing innovations solutions to achieve open government-related applications, such as crime mapping. As an example, Vein walks us through the concept of how two developer mothers created a listing of services for activities with their children, such as best parks to go with their kids, best schools, best services for their kids, etc. It is a mommy application that shows that the opened information can make real changes in the lives of its citizens. And the city is now working with other cities to further this vision. For more information about the Gov 2.0 Expo, visit http://www.gov2expo.com/gov2expo2010.
