Q: Can we reach out to Craigslist to provide their flagged listings? Examples of abuse/discrimination? (Craigslist has RSS feeds for selected areas. The easiest thing for them is to say "ya, sure, scrape", the easiest for us is an RSS feed.)

The Internet of Things (IoT) has made its way to the home (from Amazon Echo to smart refrigerators) and on to the body (Fitbit to Apple Watch), but what happens when it makes its way to public spaces? What happens when cities become alive with data? More so, what will Boston look like in 2050?
Allows secretaries/teachers to check if their students should get an excused access if the MBTA is delayed. Currently the system is that there are no excused absences. We are launching the app with BPS transportation.

Ethical (i.e LEGAL) Housing Listings
From Jascha, at the City of Boston:
I was talking to Janine Anzalota in our Fair Housing office about data mining. She mentioned the idea of scraping online real estate listings for discriminatory language (e.g. "no kids") and having a system to allow a quick response w/ a message about housing discrimination and links to things like financial support for deleading.
