TIM G. says:
I've been preaching this for over a year. You probably sense it, too...
"What the New Orleans community lacks
is a safe place for us to deliberate about our future."

Just off the top of my head, I can think of several current projects in desperate need of community input:
  • Livable Claiborne Corridor Study
  • Gert Town Neighborhood Revival
  • Mid-City Medical Complex
  • NOPD & Prison Consent Decrees
  • University Expansions & Rezoning
What can fill this void? Not Neighborland (too focused). Not NOLA Comments (too rude). Not social networks like Facebook (too personal), Twitter (too fleeting), Reddit (too byzantine) or ... none of these is appropriate.

However, I hope to convince City Hall - and more importantly, you - that an inexpensive, accessible, civil, understandable and affordable solution does exist. Something that is being used by ordinary citizens in other cities to discuss and shape all kinds of policy decisions.

It's called MindMixer. New Orleans needs it. We deserve it!

Please watch this brief introductory demo video and share with friends, then let me know what you think.

As always, thanks for your time!
