Seattle’s IdeaScale tapped for Obama feedback effort

The Obama Administration’s open government directive has been good to Seattle’s IdeaScale.

After helping the White House tech office solicit public comments last year, IdeaScale is now powering a General Services Administration project to gather public input on various federal agencies starting Feb. 6, according to this CNET report.

Tracy Russo, new media director at the U.S. Department of Justice, told the publication that IdeaScale “is one of a variety of tools that offers a productive discussion and feedback [system] because it allows the public to provide a wide variety of feedback and also engage with other people’s ideas….It allows us as an agency to look at the ideas that are most popular as well as search by keyword.”

IdeaScale is a division of Survey Analytics, which was profiled here.
