Hey, OneWebDay is a big deal.
It's an Earth Day for the Internet that happens each September 22. The Net allows people of good will everywhere to get together to make things better. For example, it is becoming an effective means of making local government more responsive. OneWebDay's theme this year is participatory democracy, and I hope to use OneWebDay as an opportunity to speak out about the power of the Net to help all of us expand our involvement in day-to-day democracy. The success of the Obama campaign is just one indication of what we can do together online – eventually, getting government to work better, be accountable, and restore rule of law.
I'm planning on getting to Washington Square in New York City at noon on Sept. 22, and so will Larry Lessig. We'll be part of a network of OneWebDay events across the U.S. and around the globe. To catch up with what's happening check out the OneWebDay site, http://onewebday.org. And to
start thinking about possible actions you can take on 9/22, go here.
