Creative online advocacy
I will be facilitating the Saturday morning session on creative online advocacy. My background is as a life-long activist/organizer and life-long geek who has blogged and advocated from the local to the national level. But enough about me!
Some questions we may want to ponder...
- How is online activism different from "off-line" activism? How is it the same?
- What are some of the most effective examples of using the Internet for political and social change? What can we learn from these?
- What makes online advocacy effective? What might make it more powerful?
- What are some of the coolest and/or most effective tools for online action and organizing? (What's the difference between cool and effective?)
- How can we integrate our online and offline activism for maximum potential?
- What is all this blog stuff and why should I care? presentation on network-centric advocacy
- Power to the Edges report on online citizen engagement
- Network-centric advocacy blog
- Extreme Democracy book/blog for networked activists
- Rather/MemoGate and SBC/SinclairWatch
Please chime in here and post a comment if you will be attending or or have questions or ideas to share. I'm looking forward to a fun and illuminating conversation!
