Curated County Government News

These are the news items that I have curated during the monitoring of the API space that have some relevance to the County Government conversation and I wanted to include in my research. I am using all of these links to better understand how the space is defining not just their APIs, but their schema, and other moving parts of their API operations.

These are curated as part of my daily work to understand what is happening across the space, and I regularly use them to track on what has occurred overtime, and include them in my guides, whitepapers, and other outputs.

County Government Companies and Organizations

These are the organizations I come across in my research who are doing interesting things in the API space. They could be companies, institutions, government agencies, or any other type of organizational entity. My goal is to aggregate so I can stay in tune with what they are up to and how it impacts the API space.

King County Open Data

The King County Open Data Project is an ongoing effort to release high-value, machine readable data sets to the public. The data sets currently available come from many areas of county government. Ongoing efforts to expand the data are in progress.

Crowdtilt allows groups to pool funds for objectives in a simple, social, and frictionless way online.We all love doing things as a group. Like with a lot of experiences, it’s not what you do ??? it’s the people you do it with that matters more.At Crowdtilt, we’re trying to make it easier for groups to do things together. Whether it’s a party-bus to the next Phish show or pooling money for a cause you know your close friends are passionate about ??? we just want to make that process of grouping those funds as easy as possible.
