Votercam gets some buzz in Cincinnati Post by Joe Wessels. I hope it draws other interested parties to this concept. The still-unfolding Mt. Adams speedbump episode, Wessels writes, "offers a glimpse of how citizens interact with their government in the future." Even before this article, I'm encouraged to note that at least one prominent elected official has already gone out of his/her (I won't say) to explore whether there's a "bigger idea" here.
One key correction to the story: we're far from having speedbumps in Mt. Adams. The city briefly put up a "Speed Sign" and one of the very helpful transportation folks said they are open to permanent speed signs in a couple areas. I and most neighbors (especially those with kids) still feel strongly about speedbumps, but progress is progress. If anyone reading this post is interested in turning votercam.com into a bigger idea, send e-mail to Pete Blackshaw or Erika Brown or just leave a comment below. For those who are reading this for the first time, here link the various community feedback about the initial concept of speedbumps, including at least one person who strongly disagrees with the concept. I'm also reposting the initial video at the top here.
