Like Seattle, E-Democracy is interested in promoting inclusive online community engagement and neighbor connecting. The key is inclusion, networking, and general lesson-sharing. (Not an effort to open new E-Democracy hosted online groups.)
For context see our Oct. 2012 Seattle workshop slides.
To RSVP that you will join us for an informal coffee house gathering on Tuesday, October 23, add your name to this:
It should be noted that before EveryBlock "went community" and our big inclusion push, Chicago volunteers had explored creating forums with E-Democracy.org. The Chicago-Team online group is open for networking as is the Open Gov Chicago Google Group.
