    Congrats Csaba, did you win anything? By the way: two other groups have recently been setup on ePractice which might be of interest for the pepneters:

    Social computing for public services 2.0

    The eGovernment City’s Forum

    For those interested in cutting-edge research on e-participation I would like to extend the following invitation for a webinar on Friday 27 June, 10am-12 CEST. Here are the details:

    TID+, e-tools for active citizen participation
    Join us for a Webinar on June 27
    Space is limited.
    Reserve your Webinar seat now at:
    e-Participation, or the use of ICT to broaden and deepen political participation by enabling citizens to connect with one another and with their elected representatives, is a concept that is much more difficult to implement than it is to understand. With the development of the TID+ project, citizens and officials are handed a tool that is based on seven years of practical experience.

    The main result of TID+, a project part-financed by the European Union, is a FOSS software tool that that can be used to organise citizen-driven e-participation.

    We will tell you more about the project and we’ll provide a short demonstration. There will be ample opportunity for you to ask questions and enter into discussion.

    The webinar will be hosted from the European University Institute in Florence using the GoToWebinar service. Audio will be Skypecasted. You can find all background information considering the project and this webinar on https://www.tidplus.net

    The webinar is projected to last for 1 hour 30 minutes. To allow for technical difficulties and for follow-up discussion, the webinar venue will be open longer.

    Please note that Skypecasting only works with a stable (non-beta) version of Skype installed in a Windows environment.
