While I applaud the idea of using technology to make community cabinet meetings more accessible and representative of the community, we used the wrong technology. Twitter is great for discussion, but it is terrible for ensuring that the time is spent answering the best questions. It also won’t scale if any decent number of people get involved.
I have created a google moderator discussion for next time and seeded it with a few questions I would like answered: http://www.google.com/moderator/#15/e=a1450&t=a1450.40
Rioters please submit your own questions and vote the best ones up! I’d love to see the top questions answered in a live video stream on youtube, with twitter used for real-time commentary from the masses. As we found out, meaningful answers can’t be delivered in 140 characters.
