Or have we just gotten to a point where Konnie Lukes reads my mind?
I keep procrastinating about petitioning the City Council regarding government 2.0 stuff, but that’s ok — Konnie just did it for me. (See this week’s Council agenda.)
11d. Request City Manager report on the development of a “crowdsourcing” program to be initiated on a pilot basis on the City’s website as a web based collaborative for polling and problem solving based on citizen input. (Lukes)
11e. Request City Manager provide a legal opinion as to what controls, if any, can be used by the City regarding inappropriate responses to a “crowdsourcing” project and whether the identities of responders can be required. (Lukes)
11h. Request City Manager report which city departments and officials use social media, such as Facebook, Twitter etc., and the process and criteria used in determining which department or individual uses social media and what purpose and accomplishments result from the usage. (Lukes)
Let’s do a rundown of the City and Social Media for Konnie, though —
Worcester Emergency Management is on Twitter.
You can also sign up for emails from the City of Worcester’s Economic Development office or the Planning office (or both).
Does anyone else have anything to add?
