WATCH THIS – Obama Healthcare Reform Community Meeting In SL – Youtube Report


The Obama-Biden Transition Team has been asking for feedback, input, and information from a large number of stakeholders and communities on important issues. On December 5th Tom Daschle put out a request for citizens to host community meetings on Healthcare Reform to provide input to the Transition Team.

The following video is a brief overview (4 minutes) of a 3 hour community meeting in the virtual world of Second Life. It highlights comments from a few of the participants from divergent areas of the USA, describes the context and process of the event, and explores how the use of social media made the discussion more inclusive of people who might otherwise not be able to participate. I encourage you to watch this video.
