Show Us a Better Way

Further to my Web 2.0 post on Wednesday (updated a little bit earlier today, BTW), I have now had a browse through some of the ideas submitted so far to the Cabinet Office’s Show Us a Better Way competition. Many have real interest to people working in the sustainable built environment arena – I liked the suggestion of expanding PlanningAlerts.com to render a 3D model of planning applications in Google Earth, and a proposal on cycle parking sits very nicely with a suggestion I emailed just this morning to Sustrans – and there are others that look at public transport, eco-homes, green constituencies and so on. Some, arguably, are already covered by existing websites, but the stream of ideas is very stimulating.
