"What's Up, Boston," which is a project of the Boston History & Innovation Collaborative, makes innovative use of text messaging to encourage civic engagement in Boston. We are thrilled that three members of the team will be joining us at the Ethos Roundtable to talk about their work.
Here's a summary from the Boston History & Innovation Collaborative's web site:
As part of efforts to jump-start civic conversations and get people “talking” live and publicly about important topics of common interest, the What’s Up Boston task force has developed an innovative way to facilitate more public dialogue. The pilot public conversation medium, an "electronic whiteboard" though which participants can share their experiences and solutions in real time by sending text messages to a publicly located screen, will be part of the Oct. 4 IdeasBoston conference.At the conclusion of the Ethos Roundtable session, we will stroll down the hall to enjoy the good company, food, and drink at the 501 Tech Club that is so generously underwritten by TechFoundation. The 501 Tech Club is the monthly gathering of technology professionals who work with nonprofit organizations.
All Ethos Roundtable attendees are welcome at the Boston 501 Tech Club, and vice versa.
There's no need to make a reservation to attend Ethos Roundtable events. However, if you're planning to attend the Boston 501 Tech Club event at 6:00 pm, we ask that you send an email to Kathleen Sherwin of TechFoundation (ksherwin AT techfoundation DOT org).
