NC: Open Source Develops the Future of Downtown Raleigh | PublicCEO.com | local gov and technology | Scoop.it

California may be a leader when it comes to technology and local government, but our public agencies are not the only ones employing cutting-edge practices. Guest contributor Jason Hibbets discusses Raleigh, NC and its efforts to use open source technology to give citizens a voice and spur local development.


Can you revitalize a city and attract businesses using open source principles? David Diaz, president and CEO of the Downtown Raleigh Alliance thinks so. In fact, I got a chance to sit down with David to discuss how economic development organizations are interacting with their local and state government, citizens, businesses, and landlords.

 

Diaz and his organization apply the principles of transparency, participation, and sharing to their economic development programs.

In part one of our interview with David Diaz, we explore how open source is applied to economic development, how his organization works with local government, and the programs Downtown Raleigh Alliance has implemented.

For instance, it can take a team of 13 social media and advertising specialists up to 45 days to plan, create, and get approval for one corporate social media post.

 

To learn more about the process, I spent a morning at Huge, a digital design and advertising firm that runs the social media accounts for eight different brands, including TD Ameritrade and Audi. At the agency’s New York office, a team of five social media gurus spend their days keeping tabs on conversations across Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and whichever social app pops up next....

Fascinating look inside a social media war room. but here are some numbers that don't add up to big impact in my opinion: 0 RTs, 2 Favs, 100 Twitter followers, 220 Facebook fans. Huh?
