2011_2_9_windy_citizen.jpg In about 40 minutes Windy Citizen is hosting a Q&A with Chicago News Co-Op's Dan Mihalopoulos about the ins and outs of being a reporter covering City Hall. The question portion of the Q&A consists of submissions from Windy Citizen users, in a unique crowdsourcing experiment.

According to Windy Citizen Community Editor Len Kody, they and CNC will be doing a whole series of these Q&A's focusing on the upcoming mayoral elections. "We think it will be lots of fun having the CNC reporters out and engaging with the the public via our site's interactive format," Kody said.
