GIS-format data wherever possible

CoA is already doing a lot with GIS (Geographic Information Systems, IE digital mapping and layering w/ location-specific data); they could do more and make much more available to the public, especially regarding environmental and planning data.

For endless ideas, see http://www.gis.com/index.html & http://www.esri.com/technology_trends/index.html.

feedback/ratings on public services

Ability to give feedback on services or agencies: ratings, kudos, complaints, requests for different hours or locations, etc. Of course, this would need some kind of "deputized" moderation that keeps it from being a flame-war, and doesn't scare the pants off the bureaucrats, yet allows real problems to "bubble up" and be seen.

Imagine what might happen with certain law-enforcement matters...

Use WebKit (HTML5) Client Side Databases When Available

HTML5 includes a powerful client side SQL DB capability that hardly any sites use yet. This would be a perfect place to store user prefs and other user-specific data instead of in session variables, if the browser allows it. Could fall back to session variables and cookies for older browsers, but any WebKit based browser should be able to manage its own user data.

Community input

I would like to see a Yelp - style input/feedback section. The community should be able to rate services and make comments. I realize this can get ugly, but if Yelp and the neighborhood listservs are any example the sum total is quite informative.

more info about environmental impacts

i'd like to see easy access to envision central tx, austin energy, austin water conservation, austin watershed protection, city solid waste services, and etc -- on per capita eco impacts reporting. . .

 

obviously there are load studies and reports done in order to scale services.

 

why not share that with us citizens, so we can self monitor a bit more?

A chart or map of where free wireless access is available. List coffee shops, libraries, etc. Maybe even list places that also have computers that people can freely access, or include ones that charge also.
