Developing EatSure Vancouver

I have been working with Tim Smith and David Daves for this project, Eat Sure Vancouver.
This is a project inspired via http://eatsure.ca/
We started this as a part of International Opendata Hackathon Day projects which was a lot of fun.






We hacked Vancouver Coastal Health website and retrieved all the health-inspection data. 
Here is the code repository: https://github.com/tdsmith/eatsurevan_grab/
Now we are preparing data for a health-inspection data site. We talked with guys who are working for London Eatsure project and they are happy to share the domain with us; there is a similar project started in Victoria BC too.
Another project in Ottawa who is making API for the Ottawa Eatsure data is also cool: https://github.com/titanous/eatsafe-api


David wrote a blog post about how Yelp! could use health-inspection data to improve the accessibility of the inspection data; there might be a chance that this could integrate with Yelp! and expand this project to reach wider audiences. (See: How Yelp Could Help Save Millions in Health Care Costs | eaves.ca)
Also Vancouver Coastal Health is getting interested in talking to us about their data. 


I tweeted yesterday to look for a graphic designer for this project and huge thanks to many RTs, I got a more than a couple of replies. 
In fact, a designer in Bangalore,Vamshi Krishna Reddy, replied to me with a cool logo design!


Although I am not sure if we can use this logo for the site, I would like to thank Vamshi again for his work and would love to see a further opportunity.
It is amazing to see how fast words spread out globally and see that people are willing help on cool ideas.


This is getting pretty, pretty interesting!
