Description

Investigating the user experience from the perspective of elected officials. What new technologies are our Members of Congress using to communicate with their constituents? What first drew them to the tools they use? How is new technology specifically helping them better serve their constituents? How do they balance a new level of transparency these tools provide with their need or desire to keep some things private? How are they directing their staff to integrate these tools into their daily routines? What is the biggest potential danger they see in using these tools?
