Today we swore in Seth Coleman as a new Fire Captain in Seabrook. Congratulations to Seth. It was our second utilization of the new Periscope technology. That video is below.
The Town of Seabrook this week utilized the brand new technology called “Periscope”, which is a live video feed sent out through the “Periscope” app, currently available only on IOS devices. While the technology is new and there are not a whole bunch of users just yet I can say that I see real potential for some positive utilization for Town government. The app will actually let you ask real time questions, which can be answered by the folks doing the video. I hope to be able to bring some interesting live feeds out with Periscope, and I hope that we are able to get a little bit of interaction with residents as well. For now we are taking the technology for a test drive. Our first effort was “Five Minutes With the Chief” with Fire Chief Bill Edwards. I have uploaded the video to You Tube, so that we are able to show what went out live over Periscope. If you have any ideas for what might be an interesting use of the technology please drop me a line.
