Today in municipal snow clearing info tech: Chicago has launched a site called "Chicago Shovels" that includes a realtime map that tracks where the city's snowplows are operating. NYT on the snowplow tracker: "city officials expect [the map] to debunk the belief that routes are politically motivated." (Next level: a mashup with the tracker and the addresses of local political leaders.)
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.
