State Department to Hold Digital Town Hall

From the people who bring you Dipnote comes the 5th Summit of Americas Digital Town Hall!

That’s right, the State Department is taking the White House’s lead and bringing interactivity to new heights with this interactive Web site.

Similar to what the White House did, the concept here revolves around submitting questions for Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who will answer them live on Friday.

However, this town hall, hosted by Howcast, makes better use of Web 2.0. By creating an account or logging in via Facebook Connect participants can interact in discussion forums, edit wikis and build community along the way.

Even though this application was not developed by State and is not hosted by them, this has got to be one of the first government 2.0 applications I’ve seen that uses Facebook Connect.

I hope to have a write-up of the town hall over the weekend! Submit your questions now!
