What Fresh Hell Is This?

iBurgh @ Netroots

(Still playing catchup from being ill.)

By now, you've all hopefully have heard about iBurgh: the first iPhone application for registering citizen complaints through a mobile phone. You also know the part played by Councilman Peduto in trying to advance "e-democracy."

Peduto hosted a panel at Netroots Nation 2009 called "How Technology Can Enhance Democracy in Pittsburgh and Beyond."

Priya Narasimhan of YinzCam which developed iBurgh spoke during the panel and you can see her presentation here:
