Just a shout out to those members using Ning as their hyperlocal software, the OpenlyLocal
Ning application has just been approved and is now in the Ning Application Directory.
This means you can now have key council info, including forthcoming meeting dates, councillors, committees etc right there in your Ning community. This is very much a first draft, and more functionality will be added in the near future (do' worry, you won't have to change anything the changes will occur automatically.
The app takes only a minute or so to add to your community, and full instructions are on the blog post, OpenlyLocal info on your hyperlocal website, Part 2: Ning app
Would love comments and suggestions, either here or on the blog
p.s. For anyone not familiar with it, OpenlyLocal
is a project to open up local government data, particularly democratic data (e.g. meetings, councillors etc)
