Live traffic updates: Gotthard tunnel traffic update
Everyone talks about smart phones today. What about smart blog posts ?
I am just testing this new idea of intelligent blog posts on ppalme.blogspot.com.
It is not just a post on a blog with text and pictures.Iit also contains small little widgets.
One widget for example is showing all the twitter tweets with the hashtag #Gotthardtunnel.
Additionally it displays live webcams along the way and has a link to the google traffic map showing the area of the
Gotthard tunnel motorway A2.
Blog posts are easy to display on smart phones and won´t require any apps programming and downloading for the end user. So drivers can easily get an update on how the traffic flow is towards the Gotthard tunnel and away.
Other drivers can use the hastag #Gotthardtunnel to update on the traffic along the way.
I can add at any time more and more intelligence to the blog post as I go along.
I just did. Now it includes a google news rss feed on the latest news on the Gotthard tunnel.
Please see my example : Gotthard tunnel traffic update
