Birmingham issues digital challenge – A Birmingham City Council competition for wannabe film-makers and photographers to submit work around the Big City Plan. But it was this part in the article that really caught my eye:
In addition to launching the Digital Challenge, the council has also promoted the Big City Plan via a wide range of social media tools, including Facebook and Twitter.
Communications staff are now looking at ongoing ways to embrace web 2.0 developments in consultation with new media experts across the city.
Heartening news that the Council is looking to embrace and enter into this arena rather than pretend it isn’t there, and are willing to take advice from people who can help them along their way.
