DorobekInsider: More on EPA’s Radon government 2.0 experiment

with 4 comments

Earlier, I told you about EPA’s wonderfully simple yet wonderfully innovative radon initiative. Rather then just having the EPA go out and make a public service announcement, they let users do it — and then selected the winner.

I have some additional information.

First off, I have posted the instructions and directions that were provided to people — it might make a good starting point for other agencies thinking about this kind of experiment.

On my previous post, I included the video that won, but you can also see the runners up.

The Unwanted Guest

A Radon Story

and Radon Information Video

It’s a great idea and EPA deserves a lot of credit for having the fortitude to give away some of their control and involve others.

Speaking personally, I now know a lot more about radon then I ever did.
