We opened up a second disaster response small group and still have
some spaces available for our real-time experiment tomorrow
immediately follow the White House Safety Datapalooza webcast:

RSVP:

Morning Webcast Link:

    (Not yet active.)

Folks from the Administration are informally watching this idea unfold
- can we use real-time online tools to generate public and stakeholder
engagement from those not able to attend important events that are
webcast? Hmmm. Let's give it a try.

If like me, you find the Twitter stream touching only the tip of the
ice berg, give this virtual event tomorrow a try.
