Cleveland 2.0

March 10, 2007

I have been invited to attend a half day meeting and brainstorming session in Cleveland on using Web 2.0 technologies to meet community needs through becoming more of a connected community.  It’s a great idea called Cleveland 2.0 which is being sponsored by Case Western Reserve University, my alma mater. Specifically it is the brain child of Lev Gonick, CIO of the university.  His treatise on Web 2.0 and Cleveland is extensive.  Some of the proposed ideas are:

  • A common, replicable and scalable web 2.0 framework enabling citizens to propose legislation in their cities
  • Personal Digital Citizen Initiative – a device for all low income people
  • PledgeBank is a web 2.0-enabled site to help people get things done, especially things that require lots of participants
  • The Cleveland Health Interpreters Network
  • International Center for High Definition Presence in Support of the Arts and Culture

Should be an exciting day. Will report more after the fact.
