Following Up on the Toronto Innovation Showcase

My Government 2.0 class didn’t meet this Monday, partly because I was on jury duty, and partly to give students a chance to catch up after last week’s two-day showcase at City Hall. Two things I’ve been watching to fill the void are:

  1. City of Toronto Meeting Monitor --- scrolling lists of proposals, amendments, referrals, and what not. I'd love to see something like this for the University of Toronto...
  2. (which got a mention at O'Reilly from Nat Torkington). Neat to see that so many people want the same things my students did; kind of sad that some of that data (like household energy consumption) isn't going to be available for a long time.
