Check out the new My Dot Tour video!!

The My Dot Tour video is now live on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKpICauLQ9E or embedded at http://mydorchester.org/youth/mydottour. Have look:

Shot and edited by Igor Kharitonenkov in very short order, this 4-minute documentary gives an excellent summary of the My Dot Tour initiative. Props to Kate Balug (GSD alum, co-founder of the Dept. of Play, and a good friend of the Center) for all of her incredible work on this project!

The MIT Center for Civic Media contributed in the overall planning of the project and with the implementation of the technical infrastructure that supported the neighborhood tours. In particular, this project proved to be a good application of the Center's VoIP Drupal platform, an open source framework that makes it easier to build communication systems that integrate phone, SMS and web together (http://drupal.org/project/voipdrupal).
