President Obama Hangout

E-Democracy, the Smart Chicago Collaborative and our civic technology friends are hosting a concisely designed video Google Hangout brainstorming session. We will report back our results to our contacts at the White House. No, the President will NOT be dropping in! 

The capacity is ten participants per Google Hangout for two-way video. It is best if you participate using a headset from a quiet location.

One of our goals is to promote the idea that the public and stakeholders can engage themselves in serious ways unsing technology tied to important open government events. If this works, will be a resource for scheduled and sponaneous gatherings.

The Smart Chicago Collaborative has compiled an excellent list of resources. For those interested in related use of civic technology and social media for crime prevention, join our proposed online group. Also note our tips on using online groups to recover from disasters locally.
