Editor’s Note

Greetings, E-Democracy.org supporters! While it’s been several months since we last sent you a newsletter, we’ve still been busy working toward our goal of improving civic engagement online and providing resources for neighbors and communities to connect in meaningful ways online.

As you’ll see in this issue, our Participation 3.0 efforts are leaping forward, due to the dedication of so many people across the globe. We’re also gearing up for another Give to the Max Day fundraising effort.

Over the past couple years, we’ve been struggling a bit to find a format that will make this newsletter useful to you – providing you key information about our efforts, and giving you opportunities to get involved. This is why you haven’t heard from us in awhile. But what we realized recently is that this communication needs to be focused more clearly on what we expect from each of you, so we’ll be working to include content that will be more relevant to you.

That’s where we need your help. If you would like to see a story or hear an update about a particular project, contact me. Or if you’re interested in helping with a particular effort, visit our Participation 3.0 page or contact the E-Democracy.org team.

We’ll be sending this newsletter out quarterly, with information that augments the more frequent communications (~3 times month) available on our Project Blog and other project forums. We’re anxious to hear what you think. And we hope a more focused product will help you stay more engaged in and informed about our efforts.

We’re at an important time in the history of civic engagement. Now more than ever, we need to harness the power of the Internet to connect people and break down the barriers to participating in democracy. More …
