Pittsburgh City Council Greenlights New "Webisodes"

The new online only content will focus on minor characters, including Tonya Payne and Linda Johnson-Wasler, with regular guest star Mark Rauterkus.

The only opposition to what is being called "the most exciting change to Pittsburgh Government since they installed the flag of Slovakia in Council Chambers" came from Councilman Jim Motznik, who believed that the content would eventually be uploaded to Napster, where it could be viewed without royalties. Mr. Motznik was later commended by his colleagues for his keen grasp of current new media issues.

Producers are hoping for some sort of mid-season crossover with Waffle Shop, with former Councilman Len Bodack returning to play the part of the Waffle.

Thanks for the link.

I gave my thoughts about the plan in a message to twitter.

NO NEED for videos, beyond services now to Pgh City Council meetings. Need upgrade = real-time voice-casting, phone, & audio archives.

All of the upgrade could be handled by a TalkShoe account and 60-seconds from the clerk and a cell phone with $15 bill from Radio Shack.
