I Shall Be Heard.Com, New Political Opinion Website, to Launch With Live Webcast from New Orleans Sheraton Sunday, August 27 - T

NEW ORLEANS, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- During the Hurricane Katrina anniversary, IShallBeHeard.com, a new national website designed to let the people's voice be heard by giving a report card to their elected officials, will launch with a special live 3 day webcast featuring elected officials, citizen activists and members of the media from the Downtown Sheraton in New Orleans. This live webcast is dedicated to telling Katrina survivor stories and will feature an "open mic" so Gulf Coast residents who want to share their story are invited to come Sunday, August 27 from 12-4, Monday, August 28 from 10-4 and Tuesday, August 29 from 10-4 (weather permitting) for an interview.

IShallBeHeard.com is the brainchild of Nick Rini, former CEO of two early-stage technology companies, MicroVault, Inc., an e-mail security company he founded, and Didera, Inc, a database performance software company. Rini's team includes co-founders Michael Cornfield, Ph.D., also a founder of The Institute for Politics, Democracy & the Internet of George Washington University, and John Fousek, Ph.D., an historian who authored the book "To Lead the Free World."

"We are bringing the power of the Internet to the American people to give them a voice in matters that affect all of us in our daily lives," said Rini. "As the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina shows, an enormous chasm has developed between the people and the elected officials they have voted into office. We plan to bridge that gap by allowing the people to give their elected officials the equivalent of a report card from A to F. They will also be able to express their beliefs about a variety of hot topics. We'll take their input and send it to their elected representatives and, in many cases, to the media. In short, we will not only help our elected officials understand what the people want, we'll attempt to influence them to act according to the people's wishes."

The webcast will be archived on the IShallBeHeard site and the Shadow TV broadcast will be searchable through Google News and Google Video. For more information or to become a participant, please contact Ashley Casey, ISBH Director of Events, at [email protected].
