Getting a drivers' license or passport, receiving medical care or seeing your newborn baby...sometimes these are things one needs to pay extra money for in India. Bribery is common when dealing with everyday life in many parts of the world and India is quite well known for its corrupt practices by government officials. To counter this ubiquitous habit and cleanse official departments' lack of honesty in the country, a crowdsourcing website called I Paid A Bribe has set up where people can share their experiences of bribery costs, details, etc.
India isn't alone in having such a reputation though -- I think so many places could utilize and benefit from this kind of platform! While a virtual public square for discussing bribery may not be the most ideal or perfect way to solve such a hugely common issue, it's a great start for finally calling out these problems in a way that has not been done before (Karnataka's State Transport Department is using the website to cleanse internal corruption).
These kinds of tech-based approaches to societal corruption are still pretty much unexpected by the average person in 2nd and 3rd world states. However with the ubiquity of cell phones and broadband in increasingly obscure parts of the globe, the virtual public square may often be the only place where people can safely air out their experiences in order to prevent future problems from proliferating.
