The LA Fire Department and Web 2.0

My interview with LAFD Public Service Officer Brian Humphrey is live at LAist. Thanks, Brian for taking the time to geek out with me for a bit re: the LAFD’s cutting edge experiments and efforts in making full use of ubiquitous Internet connectivity to provide the ultimate in public service.

Read the interview here.

Also, congrats to Assignment Zero for having its first series of crowdsourced articles (on crowdsourcing) published in Wired.

I don’t know whether or not my interview with Newsvine CEO Mike Davidson will make it into Wired, but either way, it was a great experience writing and editing for the project and I look forward to collaborating again in the future!
