For those of you who tuned in and/or participated, I'm wondering if this kind of idea is one we should pursue on other occasions.http://www.thedailypage.com/daily/artic ... icle=27697
It's essentially a chat room, but designed for a specific period in time and focused on one event. I think the Edgewater debate was great because people could watch on TV and submit questions and comments that could be answered by Joe Tarr, who was live on the council floor. Even better, Brenda Konkel and Robbie Weber logged in and participated throughout. Politics aside, both have extensive parliamentary experience and some insight into why the hell the council operates a certain way.
I think you can also run CoverItLive on mobile devices, so there's a lot of potential.
I guess I'm asking: Should we try this again?
If we do, I'd like to invite some specific people and publicize it as an opportunity to get questions answered while something is going down from people in the know. I really like that the experience depends on the quality of the audience that it attracts and I'm pretty happy about the results.
