Awesome new website for NH complaints…with the goal of actually fixing them! Oh Joy!

There’s a new website designed to fix New Haven! seeclickfix.com is an interactive map powered (of fucking course) by Google that allows anyone to click anywhere on the map and report problems they’ve witnessed that needs a fixin’ around town. This website as of now sorta makes it seem like New Haven’s biggest problem is potholes – although some concerned citizens have reported the sketchy drug deals that the guy who sells “socks and belts” out on the southwest corner of the Green is up to and the fact that the benches that line the Green are not sufficient homeless shelters. Either way this site gets two thumbs up for trying to help make my life better.

    Rach,

    Thanks for the post about SeeClickFix.com. Seeing people using our system makes the work worth while. Its great to have the positive reviews and responses.

    One thing I wanted to make sure was clear was that SeeClickFix.com is for everyone, anywhere. Our tag line is “local every where, from day one”. Check out the issues being created in Buffalo (http://seeclickfix.com/?at=buffalo&x=0&y=0). We’ve built technology to try and get the opening page to zoom right to the area you are most interested in. Hopefully that didn’t trick you too much.

    I’m looking forward to seeing the first issue you report, from where ever you are.

    Cheers.
    -Kam

    Hey Thanks Ben! But WordPress isn’t able to run widgets yet unless you’re using your own page…which I am not…sigh

    I should also note that I disagree with all of your other opinions on this site and find most of them tremendously offensive.

    When you come around to New Haven, I’ll give you a free T-Shirt:

    Fair enough Ben, Fair enough.

    But I actually have the anti-pleasure of living here in NH and have for about 10 months now. Wanna get coffee? Maybe you can sway some of my opinions.
