Highlighted Site of the Week – Mobile Citizen Summit

A great deal of attention is being paid these days to mobile phones, mobile apps, and how these things will change political campaigns, elections, and the interaction between government and citizens. So when I saw this item on KStreetCafe blog, I thought I ought to share it this week as our Highlighted Site of the Week: The Mobile Citizen Summit.

On April 16, Mobile Citizen Summit will be held in Washington, D.C. According to their site, it is “a one-day learning laboratory for those interested in applying mobile technologies to empower, fuel and drive citizen engagement in the public good.” It promises to enlighten attendees on the possibilities that mobile technology opens up, to show the latest gadgets and apps, and to give existing case studies of businesses that are successfully using mobile apps.

Registration appears to be free and as of right now there are 156 available tickets. The Planning Committee of Mobile Citizen Summit are even open to receiving input on what topics should be covered in the all-day event and are taking suggestions for adding speakers to their agenda.

If you cannot attend, you may wish to follow them on Twitter (@mCitizenSummit) and their hashtag #mCitizen.

Have a terrific weekend!
