Northern Voice 2008 – accreted notes

SkylightsRough notes from today’s conference…

13:30-14:00: An afternoon discussion with a Vancouver City Planner, a rep from mag.no.lia, some guy from Portland, and many others.
the challenges for cities=adopting social media for public participation initiatives.

how do people get something back? more than just “thanks for coming”. stewardship is important. but how do we get people unplugged and back in the community, actively participating.

Irwin: it’s a conservative time, politically. lockdown mentality within city staff and bureaucracy.

Chris Heurer and Roland Tanglao on mobile blogging

mobile blogging=video, audio, multimedia blogging

what tool is appropriate for what circumstance?

I asked: why the candid sharing of media? why not work with a script? Roland thinks it’s a difference btw old/new paradigms. I’m not so sure.

publicity/privacy issues act as a mediating membrane of sorts.
