Project Description


My Two Cents is about you having the voice to be heard and enabling others to do the same. Have you ever had an issue with a local service but no where to turn? Some people do not know off the top of their head which council or department manages services, we want to change that.
With My Two Cents, you will be able to make geolocated complaints, view other peoples complaints, discuss and bring attention to these problems. Most importantly, you will be heard.
My Two Cents will colate every issue nationwide, and notify every department available. If a bus stop is experiencing trouble, then your council, your electorate and even the department of transport will hear about this. We will bring attention to popular issues in the community and empower individuals.

Challenges

SEED - Open Data with a Purpose

We are seeking to challenge the status quo. Moving from open data as a bi-product of government business, to active management of open data to better support reuse and innovation – hence open data with a purpose. To achieve this we want to trigger a conversation between developers and the data custodians.

How can we combine data to help government make their big and small decisions? Government makes decisions every day—with long term consequences such as the location of a school, or on a small scale such as the rostering of helpdesk staff.
