Meeting Peter Corbett…
I met Peter while I was in NYC attending the Participation Camp (PCamp) and Personal Democracy Forum 09. Its funny how it might seem that I just bumped into him on the street but actually we were on our way back from PCamp and walking towards the subway when I asked Peter if I could do a quick video interview with him. And he was kind enough to agree to do so eventhough the rain was starting to pour ! (Thank you Peter!). We talked about alot of different things. Peter’s a really cool guy and he was more than happy to share his experience and knowledge… and oh ya.. he even produces concerts for some well known bands like Gym Class Heros… What a cool dude! Where does he find the time… I’ve got no idea!
Anyways check out the interview I had with him here. And below that, you can find his Apps for Democracy’s video Community Edition. Enjoy! Hope you find it useful !
