Have you recently lost your job? Why not find 'the place you were destined to live' and find more than just a job, but a city that meets all your personal psychological needs?!

This presentation talks about an 'App' that we built in 72 hours called #OkCapital at the #GovHack in Canberra. We are proud to announce that it won 'Best use of Spatial Data' prize.

The app essentially acts as a kind of 'dating app' that matches Australian cities to a set of psychological criteria that the individual fills in which is matched to open government data about each city.

For more details about the App please see:

  18. OkCapital Value to the Aus Citizen● Losing your job is one of the most psychologically difficult times in a persons life!● Worst of all you cant afford a psychologist to help you through it :-(● OkCapital walks you through the psychological motivators you NEED to consider when moving on in life (the things you forget when in a state of crisis, like job loss).● OkCapital starts to demonstrate a Quality of Life - beyond life as a product of fiscal-capital.
  19. OkCapital Value to Aus Government● Government MUST invest in the coming economic job crisis!● Local governments want to encourage people to move to their city!● This App demonstrates the value of having Australian cities sharing their data in standard formats with standard tools...● OkCapital demonstrates the new value that can be generated from OPEN DATA! <-- we are just a two day, hack.. imagine what we could do if a small start-up with this data worldwide!
