One Web Day in Berkeley CA

One Web Day in Berkeley CA

Hey, One Web Day is a big deal, a vision of how people across the world work together for the common good.

Last year, I spoke at the celebration in NYC, where I realized that I'm a kind of "community organizer," and that job is one of the purest forms of American democracy.

Here's the info for the event in Berkeley, with speakers way smarter than me:

The Berkeley Center for New Media Commons

340 Moffit Library – Next to the Free Speech Movement Cafe
University of California at Berkeley


OneWebDay
September 22, 2009 Noon-1pm


With Mitchell Kapor – Co-Founder of Electronic Frontier Foundation


Professor Steven Weber – Author of The Success of Open Source
Shel Waggener – UC Berkeley Chief Information Officer
Jay Walsh – Wikimedia Foundation
David Glover – Director, OCCUR – Oakland Citizens Committee for Urban Renewal
Professor Nicholas de Monchaux – College of Environmental Design
Tracy Rosenberg – Executive Director of Media Alliance

OneWebDay was envisioned by
Obama Technology advisor and open technology advocate Susan Crawford as
the Internet’s “Earth Day” – a celebration of all things web with a
serious purpose – to protect a free and democratic Internet. The goal
of celebrating OneWebDay each year is to make visible a global
constituency that cares about the future of the Internet.
According to Ms. Crawford, “Earth Day was the model when I
founded OneWebDay in 2006. In 1969, one man asked the people to do what
their elected representatives would not: take the future of the
environment into their own hands. Peoples’ lives now are as dependent
on the Internet as they are on roads, energy supplies and running
water. We can no longer take that for granted, and we must advocate for
the Internet politically and support its vitality personally.”

(Hey, Susan really is a big deal, getting stuff done!)
