Wednesday Panel: Web2.0 Activist Model Case Studies

This Wednesday I’m speaking at what will be a very interesting event in Williamsburg hosted and organized by the fine folks at The Change You Want To See Gallery. Deanna Zandt, Nancy Scola and I will be discussing our personal experiences and insights gained through our work with applying new technology to a variety of causes and movements in 2008.

Hope to see you there!

Over the past two years, Web 2.0 technologies have matured and so have the methods activists use to employ them. In 2008, activists from around the world used Web 2.0 to take command of the digital airwaves pioneering new forms of political mobilization. From Student’s for a Free Tibet’s live streamed protests in Beijing, to RNC protesters coordinating actions and monitoring police movements on Twitter to mass digital mobilizations for humanitarian relief and election protection, Web 2.0 is no longer just for social networking and fundraising.
