I'll be test-driving a new webcam for this meeting, so if you have a broadband Internet connection, you'll be able to watch the meeting live. I'll also be tweeting, uploading photos and doing all the other things I usually do during these meetings.

The new twitter widget is from a a website called Twubs, and I first saw this used by Brainshrub at Scruntiny Hooligans during their coverage of a recent Asheville City Council meeting. The twubs embed allows you to see tweets and twubs that are tagged with #MaconGov tweeted by anyone who uses twitter. It also allows you to view related photos and videos. The best thing about this is that you don't even have to have a twitter account in order to be a member of this twub and add your two bits to the conversation!

And here is the player for my webcam coverage of the Franklin Town Board of Aldermen meeting:

You may have to refresh the page once the stream starts. I'll try to start the stream a few minutes before 7pm so that I can iron out any bugs that may be present.
