Trafikanten & open data update - things happened

Following up my post from about 2 months ago, I was announcing good news on the way. As you may already know, the bigs news is finally out there: Trafikanten has opened up their data!

I would like to thank the various people involved in getting this in place, in no particular order, Bent Flyen, Christopher Worren and Jarl Eliassen from Trafikanten, Bjorn Tennøe from Iterate, Marius Mårnes Mathiesen from Shortcut and the numerous people whose name I've forgot along the way.

What's next ?

* I hope that now some people will come up with cool things building upon this free data & API

* yesterday I found farebot for android, and I would love to see the Flexus card data supported by similar applications. I already contacted trafikanten, and will follow up here.
