Making Cities Better With DIYcity

Making Cities Better With DIYcity
Christine Huang

John Geraci, creator of Outside.In, recently introduced us to his latest project, DIYcity, a site and online-offline community devoted to “finding ways people can make their cities work better with the use of emerging web technologies.” DIYcity asks users to share their ideas on how to increase efficiency, effectiveness, and sustainability in their cities through user-built web applications (i.e. apps built on Twitter, Google Maps mash-ups, etc). Anyone in the community can submit problems they see within their cities, which others are then encouraged to suggest solutions for and/or develop apps to help alleviate them. The site just launched and is still building its network, but we love the idea and look forward to seeing how it develops. If you’re in the NYC area, check out the DIY New York City group and we’ll see you at the first meet up.
