Twitter notes from Personal democracy Forum 2009


Hey, Eric Kuhn summarizes the conference briefly, and this does give you at pretty good idea of the deal.

My contribution: Craig Newmark: Nerd + Wonk = Nonk

(I guess that's #nonk for you Twitter fans.)

Better stuff, just a small part:

Mark McKinnon (McCain 2008): "Democratization means campaigns are losing control."

Joe Rospars (Obama 2008): Our new media component was
linked to a traditional campaign component. I hired journalists to
leave all their careers and lead their media team.

Rasiej: "'Public' should be re-defined as being searchable and readable online.

danah boyd (during her absolutely brilliant presentation. Read it here.)

Jeff Jarvis: "We must give government permission to fail." 

Macon Phillips (White House director of New Media): Participation and collaboration are important to what the White House is doing now.

Alec Ross (Senior Adviser to Hillary Clinton): "I look at the system, I am pessimistic. I look at the people, I am optimistic."
