Civic Media Session: "Effective Citizenship in a Connected Society"

In this age of streaming data and 24/7 connectivity, the options for civic engagement are many. But what does it really mean to be an effective citizen? Is there an app?

Tom Steinberg is founder of mySociety.org, a UK-based consultancy that's become one of the innovators in helping individuals participate in civic life and demand accountability from their government.

He joined Center for Civic Media director Ethan Zuckerman for a conversation about tools and techniques to encourage civic engagement in a connected society.
