SeeClickFix.com — public/private partnership for local gov't customer service
Posted on August 27th, 2009 by Craig Newmark
hey, the deal with SeeClickFix is that it's about people working with local problems they need fixed.
You can report problems, and then they're sent to local gov't to get them fixed. To some extent, you can even track progress.
Also, you can define a "watch area" and see what people report.
For example, the watch area for San Francisco 311 is http://seeclickfix.com/watch_area/349 which sends emails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
An example: Traffic backup at Arco, Fell & Divis.
I feel this is a pretty good system, something that gets real stuff done, at near zero cost.
