Midtown Brews with Meet The Bloggers
- In our last Midtown Brews mailer, we pointed out a new effort in Cuyahoga County to promote transparency called, Map the Mess. This collaborative web site features the power of Social Network Analysis, and with help of the citizens of Cuyahoga County, Map the Mess can inaugurate a new day of transparency, civility, and shared responsibility in government.
- Valdis Krebs - Orgnet Founder and creator of InFlow, the social network software used to Map the Mess - published the Sunday blog post, Weaving Journalists, referencing the New York Times article, "Crowd Funding: A different way to pay for the news you want." The article describes how investigative journalism is frequently powered by many, small citizen payments funding journalists to opt-in to stories they are interested in writing about.
- Not dissimilar from Map the Mess, which continues to gain public participation and momenteum. You can view one of the early maps of the mess using the "indirect quid pro quo" concept entitled, "The Russo 5 Step."
