Video: A Case for Open Data in Transit

As a user of open data from the MBTA (I'm a big fan of NextBus), I can't agree more with the movement towards opening as much data as possible to developers for urban transit initiatives. If done right, it encourages expanded ridership and can serve to make the services more efficient.

I think O'Reilly's point in the video of government serving as a platform for private development is startlingly obvious and insightful.
