I decided just this morning to prove a little point I have been making about ‘smart’ technology and how it can easily be used to enhance and reach out to the electorate to help democratic engagement.
So without spending an extra penny today, I am going to show how easy it is to film and broadcast a live Council Meeting to the world wide web and as such directly into your homes and smart devices be they phones or tables.
I don’t know if it is all going to work or not but I am going to do this without using any special items or services but just going to use an iPad Mini.
To follow the event please go to my broadcasting account on Bambuser where the feed will be going live at 19.00 tonight, the video feed will be found here .
I hope that the quality is good enough for you all to take part in this twitter hashtag #CoWApr2014
