Crowdsourcing a rescue for Puget Sound

In a sign of the new way government and citizens are interacting, the EPA is using its Twitter account to push for Twitizens to submit suggestions on protecting and/or restoring the Puget Sound.

Tell us what you think are the highest priorities to help protect Puget Sound: http://bit.ly/Hf4nW

EPA Web and social media guru Jeff Levy was more blunt on his personal Twitter:

"Anybody care about Puget Sound? Help EPA protect it! http://bit.ly/Hf4nW"

Can Twitter save the Sound? Time will tell. But given the failure of politicians over the decades to come up with solutions, some crowdsourcing is definitely in order.
