National Transit Data on a Couple of Fronts
Do we need a national Transit Wiki? An ambitious, but intriguing project. How could the Portland region contribute?

I like the transit wiki concept, it just needs some refining.
Actually, what it probably needs is Max Ogden. If I understand correctly he's being funded starting in January by O'Reilly to work on just this sort of stuff; accessibility of Public Datasets.
The OpenGIS community is starting to make moves towards having open data sets that are posted to a common server some where. The normalization is always the hard part. Wouldn't it be grand if there was just some spec that everyone supported for this data.
