Intersection of Technology & Politics: Personal Democracy Forum 2009 round-up
By Jill Miller Zimon on July 01, 2009
What's at the intersection of politics and technology? More than a
thousand people at 60th and Broadway on June 29 and 30th, aka Personal Democracy Forum 2009.
I attended Day 2 of PdF and suggest that first, before anything else, you check out the new IT Dashboard
that lets you see how your taxpayer dollars are being spent by the
federal government in a way you've never seen before (the system is
said to have crashed just an hour after it was unveiled yesterday but
it's fine right now).
Then, browse the links and live-blogged sessions from yesterday (including Twitter streams during each session):
PoliTech Demos: Andrew Hoppin of NYSenate.gov, David Moore of OpenCongress, Benjamin Stein of MobileCommons and Tristan Harris of Apture
For a quick list of reviews:
Two from the Wall Street Journal:
And one from WIRED:
Then, courtesy of Nancy Scola with PdF, here's a link
to a view of the audience during Michael Wesch's amazing presentation
as well as the Flickr stream of photos that were taken at the event.
Bonus: I was there blogging for my site,
The Moderate Voice and BlogHer.com and I'm proud to tell you that that look of
recognition came over folks when they saw "BlogHer" on my
press pass tag made me smile.
