I know it’s been nine days since I’ve posted, but I honestly haven’t been lazing on the patio chair sipping margaritas!
For one thing, I also contribute to another blog that I’ve neglected so my last couple of postings have been on the Deliberative Democracy Consortium Blog that I co-author with some amazing people. This past week I’ve posted to that blog twice. Check out information about:
The fellowship I’ve been preparing to design a civic entrepreneurship course for the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Graduate Library and Information Sciences program. I hope you’ll check out my blog posting on the DDC Blog and offer your thoughts.
My thoughts about the recent election.
I’ll be leaving for DC in just a few hours … with, hopefully, an hour or two of sleep! On Monday, I’ll observe a roundtable of panelists including Dr. Betty Sue Flowers (LBJ Library Director) Rich Harwood (The Harwood Institute) and John Doble (Doble Research Associates) as they discuss the results of the forums on Democracy’s Challenge: Reclaiming the Public’s Role. I know that most of you reading this can’t be in DC on Monday, but if you are available on Wednesday November 15 at noon Central Time, please join me online to learn about the public’s thinking on their role in our democracy based on their participation in these deliberative forums. Here’s how to join!
If the wireless works on Monday, I’ll blog from the National Archives. Otherwise, you’ll hear from me soon!
