Earlier in the year we witnessed the President of the United States holding a Town Hall meeting live on the Internet from the headquarters of Facebook. Now, fitting to his speech topic about jobs, this past Monday the President once again held a Town Hall meeting live on the Internet from the headquarters of LinkedIn, the premier social media service for career professionals and employers.
These type of live-online meetings incorporating streaming video and social media interaction are a powerful and growing trend. If you missed the meeting, follow the link below to see what you missed. I would also be interested to hear from those of you who participated in this LinkedIn Town Hall meeting and what you thought. Do you like the format? It sure seems like a great way to include more participation by more people. However, only time will tell how much impact it will make on the political process. Hopefully the citizens voices will not only be allowed but listened to. Please comment below and share your thoughts.

NOTE: On a side-note...very exciting to see one of my former computer students and basketball players here at Truckee High School sitting in the crowd underneath the letter "i" on the LinkedIn Banner. He is an employee for LinkedIn and LOVING his job! Way to go Josh Furr!
