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.

UK Week – Bristol, Activate Conference, London Neighbourhoods Event, Pub Gatherings, and More

Thanks to the folks at The Guardian and their Activate 2010 conference I’ll be in the UK next week. The “official” Twitter hashtag I’ll use for updates during the week is #edemuk – I’ll use this for logistics and announce any spontaneous opportunities to connect. My big message all week will be Local Matters, Civility […]

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 […]

Who is reading this blog?

The E-Democracy.Org project blog has been fairly active for about 6 weeks now. When Steve Clift set it up, I was a little bit skeptical about how useful it would be and whether or not it would be worth the time. It took me several weeks to post my first entry, but was hooked almost […]

Fancy A Pint? Gathering in Newham

One of the keys to the success of any local Issues Forum, is the occasional gathering at a coffeeshop or pub, where various members of the forum can finally meet each other face to face. Its not enough to exchange verbal barbs and intellectual arguments, the real work of building community and strengthening local democracy […]

The discussion is fueled by some participants concern that the organization planning to build the mosque is accused of having ties to terrorist organizations. Recently, the “olympics mega mosque” topic in […]
