In Civicist First Post:

Here’s yet another cautionary tale about a Silicon Valley startup with millions in VC funding and founders from Stanford that thought it could use big data to improve how cities plan for emergency disaster response, as reported by Sheri Fink for the New York Times. The start-up, One Concern, markets its products as lifesaving tools for emergency responders, but Fink reports “interviews and documents show the company has often exaggerated its tools’ abilities and has kept outside experts from reviewing its methodology. In addition, some product features are available elsewhere at no charge, and data-hungry insurance companies — whose interests can diverge from those of emergency workers — are among One Concern’s biggest investors and customers.”
