Rep. John Culberson announced an Web town meeting, next Thursday at 8.30 PM, via twitter. Here’s the tweet:
Also ann on Twitter etc that anyone can log onto my federal website www.culberson.house.gov at 7pm cst and watch and listen and ask Qs
Congress is in session through Friday. I will be in my Wash office where I will turn on my PC webcam & my Nokia 95 video phone at 7:55pm est
Next Thurs night I will conduct a unique Internet townhall meeting. Here’s how I will weave the tech together for a real time townhall mtg
At 8pm est a new software program will begin dialing up to 100,000 households in District 7 w my prerecorded message inviting them to join a live telephone townhall meeting wher they can listen into a giant conference call w me and ask Qs if they wish.
I don’t think this has been done before so it will be fun & I may have glitches but here’s how people can participate in the townhall mtg:
Phone: listening or asking me a Q; my fed website: live video, Qs by text on site; Qik: live video, Qs by text on Qik (Nokia 95) & Twitter
So this will be a live Congressional Townhall meeting from Washington by telephone, internet, video, chat, Qik, (perhaps Ustream), & Twitter
This is especially appealing to me as a fiscal conservative – I can talk to over 130,000 constituents in real time for minimal cost
I love the 21st Century!
