(In case you missed this on some other transit developer mailing lists...)

Some colleagues of mine are attempting to create a StackExchange-style site
for asking questions related to Open Transportation Technology.  If this
sounds like it might be your cup-of-tea, the proposed site needs your
initial participation:

- Become a follower
- Propose questions
- Vote on existing questions that you think would be a good fit for the
site (we need 40 questions with 10 votes or more to advance the proposal)


More details below.

Subject: StackExchange site for "Open Transportation Technology" - Please
follow it and ask questions!

Calling all professionals, hobbyists, and students (and anyone else)
interested in Open Transportation Technology!

We're trying to start up a StackExchange site (famous in the software
engineering community for StackOverflow.com) to help with Q&A related to
open-source transportation software (e.g., OpenTripPlanner, OneBusAway) as
well as open transportation-related data sources and formats (e.g., GTFS,
OpenStreetMap, NED).

Here's a link to the new "Open Transportation Technology" group's site:


Right now we need to build "Followers" of the site (click on the "Follow"
button - we need 59 followers).  We also need to post and vote on example
questions (at least 40 questions with a score of 10 or more) that would be
appropriate topics for the group.

So, please follow and post/vote away!

Also, please share this with anyone you think would be interested!

More info on the StackExchange process of creating a new group is on the
FAQ - http://area51.stackexchange.com/faq
