Boston city government developing pothole app

The Boston Globe's reports that in Boston, the mayor's Office of New Urban Mechanics is working on Street Bump, an application for smartphones that would automatically report potholes to the city's public works department when a car his a bump.  Apparently the GPS in smart phones can be used to identify bumps in the road.
Pittsburgh, sounds like an idea our DPW could use.
