Crowdingsourcing at work

Kudos to the state transportation department and the MBTA, the Boston-area transit system, for using the power of the web to obtain a new design for the system's map at no cost.  Universal Hub's Adam Gaffin reports here:

The state announced today it will start replacing T maps with a new version designed by Michael Kvrivishvili, an interactive and graphic designer from Moscow.  Kvrivishvili's entry was one of the finalists in a competition run by the T to find the best map it could without paying for it. State officials say that his entry not only won the popular vote but has a number of features that will make it better than the increasingly congested map now in use.
