No, this has nothing to do with Adobe’s document format. I’m talking about the Personal Democracy Forum, being held at Pace University in New York City. I’ll be there on Friday, May 18. The theme of the conference is something I’m becoming significantly involved in – the impact of technology in politics, grassroots activism, and elections.
I’m particularly looking forward to attending the presentations by Seth Godin and Craig Newmark. Political blogging is certainly playing a huge role in politics these days, but I’m less interested in that than I am in the more general aspects of community building and the nuts-and-bolts methods of leveraging software to empower motivated grassroots groups. It should be really interesting.
