Last week, we wrote about SFapps, a San Francisco initiative that invites developers to turn municipal data into useful tools for the city’s residents. Not one to be bested, Mayor Bloomberg just launched a similar concept in New York: NYC BigApps, “a software application competition to make New York City more transparent, accessible and accountable, and an easier place to live, work and play.” On offer for developers? USD 20,000 in cash prizes, plus dinner with Bloomberg. And, no doubt, some valuable media attention.
