#PDF2010: How Technology is Changing Politics
Personal Democracy Forum is being held this year at the CUNY Graduate center in NYC is the “world’s leading conference exploring and analyzing technology’s impact on politics and government.”
|For six years, PdF has attracted thought leaders and the most connected, driven people in the industry to come together and learn.
Watchitoo this year chose to partake in PDF’s conversations that are driving real changes in technology, governance, and the non-profit world.
Brian August Watchitoo’s Director of Content and Strategy gave an interactive demo showcasing two use cases for watchitoo- take a look: www.watchitoo.com/pro3/PDF
1. Live streaming political campaigns & interactive virtual townhalls
2. Conducting interactive virtual meetings or webinars for organizations, institutions, and politicians or candidates.
Brian’s (@BrianAugust) thoughts on the demo:
“It’s pointless to create a compelling demo without actually “doing what you do”. But when what you do is live collaborative multi-streaming, there’s a conundrum; go for the glory, conduct a full blown demo, and risk embarrassing technical failure, or scale things back and present something safe but unspectacular. Yesterday, in all of six minutes, Watchitoo demoed it’s platform by presenting to live dramatic use cases: a political organization conducting a virtual team meeting, and a candidate running an interactive town hall. Five live streams being swapped and resized, HD video, remote moderation and me playing the role of the candidate in front of 800 people. And it all worked really well..
Do what you do!”
