  • Hoping to talk about "e-democracy" & online games (ARGs, casual games & games on social networks) at #edemcamp. (via @andyfluke: http://twitter.com/andyfluke/status/1552616453)
  • "The Future of Citizen Driven Innovation: Apps for Democracy, Apps for America and What We Can Expect from Data.gov" (Peter Corbett, iStrategyLabs - Panelists welcome)
  • Youth participation -- there is often a lot of talk about the youth vote, and youth voter turnout is increasing, but young people between 18-24 for the most part don't participate in politics/governance beyond voting on election day. How, and in what ways, can we get young people to participate and engage in between elections? (Nisha Chittal)
