GillibrandTube

gillibrand video grabIn what looks like a step in her 2010 election campaign, Kirsten Gillibrand has launched a site called Conversations with Kirsten. From a post by (for) KG announcing the site on the Albany Project:

I have already traveled to many corners of New York State to introduce myself and to hear your concerns and answer questions directly. Now I want to continue that conversation on-line and open up the dialogue using the web as a way to reach the online community.

So, today I'm announcing the launch of ConversationswithKirsten.com, a web site that will help further our conversation.

The site offers the opportunity for New Yorkers to easily submit questions and comments, sign up to receive updates, and allow me to respond via emails, live blogs, conference calls and postings on the site.

It looks like you can upload your video questions and -- presumably -- she'll answer them. But it's hard to say. As far we can tell, there's nothing that explicitly says that's how it works. We're tempted to upload a video that essentially asks "Is this thing on?"

If that is how the site works -- and it's really an open exchange -- it could be interesting. Otherwise, it kind of sounds like some "Web 2.0" gloss painted on the old-school campaign "town meeting."

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

What's All Over Albany?

All Over Albany is for interested and interesting people in New York's Capital Region. In other words, it's for you. It's kind of like having a smart, savvy friend who can help you find out what's up. Oh, and our friends call us AOA.
