State and local government contest winners
Advanced Mobile 311
Developed by Randy Starr
Blue Dot Solutions
Advanced Mobile 311 is an easy-to-use, cloud-based crowd-sourcing solution specifically designed for municipalities and organizations that wish to empower their citizenry or employees to quickly and accurately generate service requests using their personal smart phones. Users can quickly identify the location of an issue on an interactive map, search and select the appropriate service code from the customers' source systems, attach a photograph, and include ad-hoc comments and contact information for follow-up.
The Advanced Mobile 311 infrastructure is cloud-based, running 24/7/365 on Microsoft Windows Azure cloud computing platform. This means that no additional hardware needs to be procured, provisioned, and/or supported to use the solution. Service requests are automatically routed through the cloud to the appropriate EAM or ERP instance based on configuration settings and the service request location.
Advanced Mobile 311 is licensed as a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution. Rather than requiring the purchase of traditional upfront software licenses, access to the solution is leased on an annual basis. Pricing is coupled to total population size, eliminating guesswork and providing an economical pricing model that spans a municipality’s entire potential user base.

Netizen (netizen.cloudapp.net) is a Windows Phone 7 + Windows Azure application (free in the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace) that allows the user to follow how their state or district is being represented in Washington, directly from their mobile phone. Simply select the Member of Congress you want to follow and "flick through" their voting record. Information about each member’s voting record is stored in Windows Azure and updated daily.
But don't just follow how your representative is voting in Congress, make your voice heard: By clicking the "Like It" button on the mobile application, you can influence your friends and neighbors about the bill through the power of social networking. For each bill, Netizen automatically provisions a Facebook page dedicated to your member of Congress. This page acts almost as a virtual ballot for a bill as well as a community hub where fellow constituents can gather to express their support.
