Here is a video of most of my presentation at the Networked Neighbourhoods event in London the other month. I start on the third minute. Unfortunately my FlipCam filled up so the rest of the even. Also see the blog recaps by Networked Neighbourhoods, and Kevin Harris. This was part of my UK trip in […]

Cricket In Brighton

One of the best parts of my job, working for E-Democracy.Org, is the opportunity to visit our colleagues and volunteers around the county and the world. This week, I’m in the UK visiting with folks involved in E-Democracy.Org projects or interested in starting one. I’m going to do my best to practice what I teach, […]

On the Road Again

Well, as of tomorrow, I’m on the road again. I’ll be in the UK for 8 days for the “e-Democracy 07” conference and other meetings, followed up by a short visit to Scottsdale, Arizona – where I’m co-presenting a full day workshop called “Using Online Tools to Support Public Participation.” As usual, I’m always eager […]

Local Elections, E-Democracy.Org, & YouTube.Com

E-Democracy.Org started out as the worlds first election orientated web-site (so the legend says) and has a long history of voter education and hosting online candidate debates or “conversations.” In our original local Issues Forum in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Winona, we’ve always found that activity and membership reach peaks in the weeks prior to […]

Last weekend (Jan 25th-28th), Dan Jellinek visited St. Paul, Minnesota from his home in the UK (where he is co-chair of the Brighton & Hove Issues forum steering committee) for the first face to face meeting of the E-Democracy.Org board, since it expanded early last year. The board met all day on Jan 27th to […]

2 Posts Per Day = A Restriction on Free Speech?

One of the cornerstone characteristics of E-Democracy.Org issues forums, has always been that we limit each participant to 2 post per day (which is now 2 posts per 24 hours). Our goal has always been to encourage as many different people as possible to participate and early on we choose to accomplish this by putting […]

It’s The Network

I’m back at home after eleven days on the road. That’s eleven days of eating, speaking, and (yes) drinking E-Democracy.Org (I didn’t mention sleep, because I did very little of that on this trip). One of the most important aspects of a trip like this one, is that it really allows me to focus on […]
