Today in Play: ParkScan goes nationwide, and more!

ParkScan is a nifty program in San Francisco where folks can report park problems by sending photos from their mobile phones. A recent article discusses plans for taking the program nationwide.

Our build with Rev Run and KOOL-AID in NYC was picked up by the MTV Remote Control blog.

Here are some news outlets that covered our build with Michelle Obama earlier this week:
