Join me and many friends of Why Tuesday? next week at the Personal Democracy Forum in New York City. You might remember we were there last year, too. I’ll be speaking June 30th on the panel Online Video: Lessons from the Obama “Idea Factory” and 2008 Campaign. While I’m there, I’ll be tweeting on the Why Tuesday? twitter account, so follow along!

This year’s conference is focused on the theme of “We.gov” and all the ways campaigns, elections, media, advocacy and governance are becoming more open, participatory and collaborative. Keynote speakers include NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg, White House CIO Vivek Kundra, Deputy CTO for Open Government Beth Noveck, State Department Senior Advisor for Innocation Alec Ross, New York Times columnist Frank Rich, Craigslist founder Craig Newmark, Fivethirtyeight.com blogger Nate Silver, Ning.com co-founder Gina Bianchini, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, Obama ’08 new media director Joe Rospars, and many, many others.
