    PDF  | Print |  E-mail
    Wednesday June 25, 2008

    While there are great liveblogs and media coverage of my talk on digital advocacy at the Mesh Conference, I've posted a synced version of the presentation and an MP3 recording of the talk.  The talk owes a lot to Ethan Zuckerman's exceptional presentation on the same subject at the ETech conference earlier this year.  I begin with three stories - the experience of Fair Copyright for Canada, Stephen Taylor's challenge of a CBC report, and the Apple 1984 advertisement as a political mashup.  I then consider ten things that make digital advocacy effective:
    • organizing power
    • online and offline
    • mainstream media
    • educate
    • action
    • speed
    • digital tools
    • localized
    • government 2.0
    • general purpose sites
