The following are a direct quote of my tweets from the last UNA Board of Directors meeting Nov. 13, 2012. Apologies for delay in posting them here - was away at a professional conference. The are posted in reverse chronological order. So, if you want the as it happened flow, scroll to the bottom and then read toward the top! Tweeting and other forms of live broadcast has become a standard practice in most government bodies with everyone from MPs to school board Trustees tweeting during meetings. At the same time the media are also doing this as well as many members of the general public. It's an interesting form of direct reporting that allows for an expanded circle of engagement in the democratic process.
UNA meeting over. Will have to think about this one. What's the deal with democracy? It should be a simple answer. Go for it. But. . .
