Get Ready to Get Eco-Social During State of the Union

For those of you not paying attention, tonight at 9pm Eastern, President Obama will give his annual State of the Union address.  In keeping with our enthusiasm for social media, we’ll be participating in a Twitter chat tonight during the speech to offer reactions, ideas, and the occasional snarky commentary on issues of sustainability mentioned (or ommited) during the evening.

Tim Hurst of ecopolitologist has cooked up a hashtag, #ecoSOTU, that you can monitor to see the discussion live, as it unfolds.  We’ll be mining Twitter after the evening is over to see what the big topics were and what sustainably minded folks think needs to be addressed.

Follow along on twitter live on Twitter or the client of your choice simply by searching for #ecoSOTU. See you tonight!
