How is it that you can report on social networking without mentioning the thriving social media community right here in Chattanooga? There are hundreds of local Twitter users who, among other things, came out for ChattUp at the Hunter last week (115 in attendance) and helped raise $700 for Girls Inc. in an online fundraiser.
The U.S. Conference of Mayors released a public proposal, the Main Street Recovery Plan, to seek $180 Billion in stimulus funds for shovel-ready projects in cities around the country. Cleveland had numerous projects listed in the proposal, while Chattanooga had none.
EPB released a statement in response to the lawsuit:
It seems very strange that no plaintiffs were named in this article. Who is really pushing this lawsuit forward?
I've read the full text of his statement, and I have to say that's an interesting choice of pull quotes. It implies that he chose to endorse Joe Lance for purely pragmatic reasons, when in fact Mr. Seagle's full statement mentions specific qualities about Mr. Lance that helped him make this decision.
There's another great event tonight: the ChattUp Election Night Party, sponsored by Chattarati, FindMeinTown and Coptix. It's being held at Coptix HQ on East Main, starting at 7:30pm. Visit Chattarati for more details.
