I won't be attending, but would like to offer some solutions as food for thought.

When you mix Social Media as a feedback mechanism and Mobile Devices as a delivery system, some care must be taken that:
A. There exists a full range of potential respondents.  c.f. http://www.rustprivacy.org/2012/roadmap/olympics/
B. Anonymous users have a way to provide accurate regional identification so that Government sources do not deliver conflicting information.
     This is a "Socio-Technical" system.  It makes the process of Government delivering data to the end of your arm less creepy.

    A recent Solar Flare resulted in NASA and NOAA forecasts/warnings just different enough to prompt questions about the differences.
    This was a case of very complex, and different models.  Lucky for us Economists always agree on everything ;-)

Dear All,

The next meeting of the W3C EGOV Interest Group will take place on
Monday 6 August 2012 from 9:00 to 10:30 London time. 

The discussion will focus on the use of social media by government
and other state actors to interact with citizens, business and with
each other, and related technology and policy issues. 

We warmly welcome expressions of interest to make 5-10 minutes or
longer presentation to share experience with social media development
and use in the public space. If you know about an initiative,
experience, research findings, etc. worth sharing, please present it
to the group or encourage your colleagues to present. Please contact
Tomasz at twjanowski@gmail.com.


09:00 - 09:05 Welcome and introductions
09:05 - 09:15 Defining the discussion space
09:15 - 10:15 Individual presentations
10:15 - 10:25 Summary and next steps 
10:25 - 10:30 Next meeting

We will also need a member of the group to help scribe. This is
essentially taking notes in the IRC chat during the teleconference to
capture the key points of the discussion. If you are able to volunteer
to scribe for the next meeting (or interested for future meetings),
please contact Tomasz or Jeanne directly.
