Committee for a Better Atlanta's 'virtual' press conference starts soon!

Posted By on Tue, Nov 24, 2009 at 8:24 PM

Dust off your webcams! At 4:30 p.m., Committee for a Better Atlanta, the citywide business coalition that recently graded City Hall hopefuls, will kick off its inaugural "virtual press conference."

The innovative marriage of new media and voter engagement will offer desk jockeys and shut-ins the chance to read Atlanta mayoral and City Council candidates' responses to TOUGH QUESTIONS from local journalists and bloggers.

Here's the schedule:

4:30 pm Kasim Reed

4:45 pm Amir Farokhi

5:00 pm Clair Muller

5:15 pm Ceasar Mitchell

5:30 pm Mary Norwood

5:45 pm Liz Coyle

6:00 pm Alex Wan

6:15 pm Aaron Watson

If you're on the fence about which candidates deserve your vote on Dec. 1, the press conference should offer some insight. Even if you've made up your mind, it'll be interesting to see how the experiment unfolds. Considering that the format appears to be a classic type-and-submit chatroom setting, it's unlikely the press conference will devolve into the phallus-infested catastrophe that was the Second Life virtual 'interview.' (NSFW?)

Regardless, be sure to tune in!
