PdF Conference 2007 is Tomorrow!

BY Joshua Levy | Monday, May 14 2007

The Personal Democracy Forum conference is tomorrow and the array of people and topics we're tackling has never been more compelling. Go here for a quick look: http://www.personaldemocracy.com/conference/ataglance

The theme is "The Flattening of Politics" by which we mean all the ways the gap between the top and the bottom--of campaigns, media, advocacy efforts, you name it--is narrowing as more and more people take the tools of communicating and organizing into their own hands.

Eric Schmidt and Tom Friedman are keynoting, along with folks like Larry Lessig, Lee Rainie, Yochai Benkler, Arianna Huffington, danah boyd, Farouk Olu Aregbe, Matt Stoller, and Seth Godin. We don't think anyone has ever put together this kind of a cross-section of the people who are making the new technology and the people who are using it to dynamic new effect in the political arena.

The last day to register is Wednesday, May 16th (after registration is closed online, you can still register at the door). We offer discount rates for students and non-profits; email dorit AT personaldemocracy DOT com for more information.
