Personal Democracy Forum 2006

News & Politics

It's that time of year again: time for online organizers everywhere to gather in New York City for the third annual Personal Democracy Forum conference, held on May 15. This is the place to be if you're looking to explore trends and learn new skills in the expansive workshop offerings this year. Here's a few examples:

--Why Your Website is Probably Obsolete (And How to Fix It)
--Bringing it All Together--Merging Online and Offline Organizing
--MySpace for Politics
--Free, Easy or Cheap Tools That Anyone Can Use

The roster of speakers this year is fairly extensive, too-- some of the noteworthy:
Joe Trippi, ChangeforAmerica
Matt Bai, New York Times Magazine
Christopher Rabb, Afro-Netizen
Chris Nolan, Spot-on
Adam Green,
Zephyr Teachout, Berkman Center

It's an excellent opportunity to spend a day hashing out and sorting through the major trends, obstacles and issues that face the online political community. For the extra geeky, the weekend before (May 13-14) features DrupalCampNYC, where beginners and advanced developers alike can learn everything you ever needed to know about the free, open source content management system -- and surrounding community -- that is Drupal.
