At our core, Net2NO is pretty much about community and technology. This month, we are fortunate enough to bring you the story of a local project that not only embodies those ideals but has seamlessly incorporated them to create a neighborhood.
We are all pretty familiar with the concept of crowdsourcing but we seem to associate it primarily with building websites and other online solutions.
Destination Broadmoor has flipped that concept on its head: Using Crowdsourcing as a solution to LITERALLY build a community. A pet project of NOLA YURP, Destination Broadmoor is a remarkable tale of the innovative ways New Orleaneans are not just rebuilding, but creating a whole new form of community.
Our Panel includes:
Neil Takemoto - RE Dev Consultant w/ Cool Town Investments
Reuben Teague - Principle at Green Coast Enterprises
Zach Kupperman - Destination Broadmoor Coordinator
Latoya Cantrell - Executive Director of the Broadmoor Improvement Association
