Open Data and Mass-Participation
Posted: Jun 12, 2016 5:21 PM ET
We've talked a lot lately about the "Internet of Things" - the idea of everyday objects communicating with the Internet. One of the sites Peter Rukavina used to make his mashup is called Pachube. It's a platform that allows anyone to post and share real time data from the environment. So, maybe that's your energy use, or the temperature in different parts of a city. Or as is currently the case in Japan, Geiger counter radiation readings. Usman Haque is the founder and CEO of Pachube, which he designed ultimately as a way of structuring participation.
