About the SAFECITIES Forum

greenspun.com : LUSENET : SAFECITIES : Policy
This forum is designed to permit individuals to comment on a model of using web technology to make America's cities safer. The model envisions a virtual community studying problems of common interest and working together to solve common problems. It also assumes an orientation toward measuring results and tracking progress. E-mail me if you would like to receive a copy of the model as a .pdf file (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader, available without cost at www.adobe.com/acrobat).
