Pic Of The Day: Digital Democracy
Earlier in February, Pete Clifton blogged here about the BBC's Digital Democracy project and mentioned the pioneering work of web services like mySociety's They Work For You.
John O'Donovan (Principal Technical Architect, FM&T Journalism); Tom Steinberg (Director, mySociety); Jem Stone (BBC Social Media Group)
Today's Pic Of The Day is of yesterday's afternoon-long brainstorm with Tom Steinberg and Francis Irving of mySociety, asking what the BBC could learn from their various civic websites and services and what unique ingredients the Beeb can bring to complement the work done by charities and volunteers.
If you have any thoughts about how the BBC can fulfill its democratic public purposes as defined by the Royal Charter [pdf], please do leave a comment at Pete's post.
