It’s been a long, hard, and not entirely successful journey getting ACT services onto the internet.
The bad news is that the mobile data revolution is going to require another round.
So what applications should ACT instrumentalities be working on to take advantage of a future where everyone has a handheld GPS/Camera/InternetConnection?
Three starters for mine:
- 1) Crimestoppers. Take a photo, hit the send button, Crimestoppers gets a GPS coordinate, a photograph and any description you choose to add.
2) Taxi. Taxi company gets your GPS coordinates, any address detail you choose to add, and your name and number. Bonus points if it displays where your despatched taxi is up to on its way to you.
3) TAMS. Much like Crimestoppers, and a bit like the Chief Minister with his little digicam but for all of us. Potholes reported in realtime.
Anyone else got any bright ideas?
