City of Dunwoody to hold strategic planning retreat this afternoon & all day tomorrow.

I don't have the complete list of topics but I am looking forward to the discussions, that being said, calling a 12 hour meeting a "retreat" is just wrong.  This is open to the public, please join me.

Dunwoody Town Hall Video courtesy of the Periscope app on my phone.

Above is a video of the second half of the town hall meeting hosted by Dunwoody Mayor Denis Shortal.

While attending the town hall and sitting in the front row recording the meeting in the usual fashion, I decided that shooting several hours of video to be converted to a YouTube format and uploaded to the web was going to take quite a bit of time so I decided to switch over to Periscope which is a video service offered by Twitter.   At the start of the parks discussion, Periscope went live and my 2,000 twitter followers were notified that I was streaming.  Within seconds I had 10 people watching online and people were commenting on the content so I stuck with it for the next hour.   It seemed to work well except for my jerky camera moves and getting caught by my viewers for attempting to prompt the mayor on a topic but over all it turned out well as I was lucky that I had a good internet signal.

The schools will be on a shortened schedule so enjoy the long weekend and as there was a protracted discussion at the town hall on the subject, one resident would like me to remind you to please remember to keep your cats inside - at all times.
