Give a Minute Project

NYC Mayor Announces New Website For Bold Improvement Ideas

Hoping to capitalize on the city's population of creative, big, and bold thinkers, NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced a new website to encourage the sharing of ideas aimed at making the city a better, greener place for its residents. The site, part of a program called Give a Minute, will launch later this Spring in both New York and San Jose after piloting in Chicago and Memphis, and its design is fun and fresh, listing residents' ideas on Post-it-style notes. Commenters can submit ideas through the site or via text message.

In theory, I really like these sorts of programs. In practice, it could succeed if residents use it properly. At the very least, it's a nice way to use the Internet to mobilize a group of people and give them individual voices for their concerns.
