Urbano Team Update: Purchasing!

Apologies for the late blog post… hopefully late is better than never. I personally wasn’t able to attend the last couple of meetings due to traveling and things being scheduled when I have class, but I will do my best to summarize what’s been passed along through emails.

After discussing suitcase options with our project partners, Aditi ordered this one, which is 29″, from ebay for us (thanks!), and it is expected to arrive next week. Some members of the team spoke with Sasha about using Vine an Vojo and issues with pulling feeds of relevant content, and he suggested that Birkan, who is our lead web developer, meet with Ed Platt (developer at Center for Civic Media) for guidance.

We had originally wanted to purchase an Acer touchscreen and a 32GB microSD card to go with it, but we realized that these didn’t actually support Vine. After some discussion, we decided to go with two Kindle Fires 8.9″ tablets so we could keep the Vine + RSS feed idea. These should hopefully arrive by Tuesday of the coming week.
