When some one comes out with some kind of crowd sourced pot hole uber it will take more than just shoveling driveway patch into the hole and calling it done if you want it to last more than a week.

Agreed.

That's why I called it performance art, and in permalink #3 I said

Real Soon Now, someone will implement a smartphone app that fixes potholes, using crowd-sourcing or a bounty system.
Although anyone should be able to nominate a pothole, it would have to be evaluated to set the bounty. Then when it's triggered, the repairing entity would have to be graded or scored for quality assurance purposes.

Have you seen the companies that shore up subsiding foundations by injecting concrete into the ground under them? It might take a bolus of concrete under the hot patch to effect an adequate repair.

If you watch the The Thinkery video it makes that your point, mockingly.

Ha! The slumlord drives a red Ford F-250 so big he can't see his p*nis over it; and he almost ran over a kid on a bike. So the office sent a note around saying 'no bike riding' (and something else I forget).

He hasn't tried to stop me yet. So long as they keep taking my money, I'll keep ignoring them.
