Ph.D. student, Indiana University School of Informatics
One of my main interests is in how technology can be used to benefit local communities. I have worked on tracking the growth of Twitter users and Bloggers in Bloomington, in particular.
I'm all about RootsCamp, an open conference dialogue that took place November 17-18, 2006 in Bloomington. RootsCamp is an open forum on any topic related to the Fall 2006 elections, including local, state and national races. Anyone can suggest a topic for discussion. Participants initiate conversations by (1) attending the event and (2) writing their discussion ideas on a whiteboard.
Other unconferences followed—one on "The Ideal Bloomington Portal" and another on "Sustainable Bloomington."
