White House Town Hall Meeting with Google Moderator

March 24, 2009

To manage weekly town hall style meetings with its Founders, CEO and guest speakers, Google developed Google Moderator. t

Built on Google App Engine, Google Moderator lets Google conduct conferences with an audience of thousands in its offices around the world.

Managing Q&A with a large audience presents a unique challenge.

Google Moderator gives participants a way to submit questions and then vote for the ones they want answered.

Utilizing Google Moderator, the White House will be hosting an online town hall meeting on Thursday and has asked people to submit questions for the President and vote on which ones they think he should answer.
