1. Interesting summary; thanks! Do you know if the G20 meeting itself will be broadcast or shared in real-time?

    I wonder how viral the delicious tagging system is catching on. Now that I know of it, I suppose I could add it to some of my bookmarks, but how many G20 planners/bloggers are really diving through the tagged content? Or is it more to have a collection?

  2. Ari – I’m pretty sure there’ll be live coverage of one sort or another. I suppose the interesting aspect of the distributed online debate is the fact that others can take part in online discussion associated with but not dependent on the main conference.

    Tagged Delicious content is useful in lots of ways – it provides a handy RSS feed and is a way for others to contribute links proactively without introducing spam.

  3. I’m glad you’ve written this up Steph. Stephen and team are doing such a fantastic job, and breaking ground by doing so in such an open and accountable way. I’ve been feeling guilty about not getting round to commenting constructively on Stephen’s blog about it – so your post helps assuage my guilt 🙂

    There should be lots of learnings from this for all of us, via Hansard Soc and Stephen.
