BEV 2.0 Goal: Create a Virtual Town Square • Provide interaction opportunities • Support community development • Attract traffic to the BEV site with automatic content • Make use of Web 2.0 and Social networking ideas

Requirements for VTS • Communication and interaction is at the heart of any social group (online or offline) • News & notices of local interest • Calendar of events, maps, friends • Groups and organizations

Communication • Friends, Messages, Blogs, Email • New plugins are possible

News • Collect news from different sources (Town, SWVA, County, Roanoke Times, Google News,Yahoo News) and aggregate them at the VTS

Calendars • Collect community, friends, and personal calendars into a single source of town events • Allow subscription of calendar in your desktop or your Google Calendar • Support mobile devices (phones, PDAs)

Research Questions • What practices emerge from the use of this system? How do people make it their own? • Will our current plan attract lots of users to the site? Will using BEV existing population be sufficient to expand its use? • What is the relationship between usability and sociability?
