As a delayed addendum to this post last week on the new ThinkUp, you might want to check out Code for America's implementation of the social media dashboard. ThinkUp is the Expert Labs' project aimed at making it easier to navigate the cloud of information that surrounds your social media engagement, which is probably something that government entities are going to need to learn to do if they're do make the most of Twitter, Facebook, and the like. The Obama White House, as we've mentioned, has alpha tested ThinkUp for its Office of Science and Technology Policy's "Grand Challenges" experiment, and it's the sort of thing that makes much more sense once you can get behind the wheel of it. So, here, check out how Code for America's using ThinkUp.
