Macon County Commissioners
04-12-2010 Meeting Agenda

I've decided to curtail live webcasting of local government because during the meetings, I am spending most of my time baby sitting the equipment, and have not been able to focus on the meeting. I will still be tweeting the meetings live via twitter, using the hashtag #macongov and, if there is demand I may continue them at some point in the future. More people are following the meetings via Twitter than the video by a margin of 50:1, so I'll focus on building and serving that audience. I will also be uploading photos during the meetings. My Twitter username is @ThunderPig.

Here is a Twitter Widget that should allow you to follow the meeting:
