In 2011, the Guardian launched its local messaging bulletin: n0tice. Although the platform encouraged open journalism, the Guardian has expanded the effort with the launch the n0tice API last week. The very premise of n0tice offers value from a locality perspective. With the open API, the value of the local bulletin can be integrated with any developer's application.
n0tice is a simple location based public notice board system. It's completely open and unfiltered, and allows users to post any sort of notice they want, tagged with their location, and lets them read notices near them, sorted by distance. Quite a simple little idea, and if it gets a user base, it could end up being quite useful. Although first designed for iPhone, the n0tice API was quickly released to allow integration into other programs, including desktop apps.
