Weâ€™ve been looking forward to the annual Personal Democracy Forum, and are proud to promote this yearâ€™s impressive two day lineup (June 5th-June 6th), which brings high-profile veterans together to explore emerging changes in the landscape of technology and governance.
Personal Democracy Media Co-founder and AskThem.io advisor, Micah Sifry, has assembled an all-star cast of speakers to shape the “Save the Internet | The Internet Saves” conversation. Our Net Freedom allies Tiffiniy Cheng & Holmes Wilson will open the conference and breakout sessions will follow touching on privacy & security policy, hashtag activism, online community organizing, and much more.
On Thursday, June 5, our very own David Moore will serve as a panelist on How the Web is Changing Local Politics, to discuss the webâ€™s potential to bolster local government engagement. You can live-stream the session here (to come).
