Citizen Reporting: Where is it going? | ChangeCamp 2010

In the past, citizens have been an integral part of ensuring a well run society. This has included actively informing government and police services of issues through the use of direct verbal contact and phone (911 and 311). With recent developments in mobile technology enabling more extensive reporting (through the use of cameras, video and audio recording, and customized applications) we are seeing an explosion of citizen reporting tools for mobile devices. These are being developed by social enterprises, for-profit companies and cities themselves. What are the opportunities? Should there be limits? Should citizens be “policing”.
