On the third annual "Earth Day for the Internet", communities across the country are holding events to learn about and advocate for that marvel of modern infrastructure, the Internet. In the nation's capital, advocates, experts and government representatives will honor OneWebDay, September 22, with a tribute to the Internet's role in politics and the politics of the Internet.
Organizers in DC are embracing OneWebDay 2008's theme of participation in democracy. They launched an e-Democracy time capsule on August 22, 2008 and invited anyone to contribute text, images, sound, and video concerning Web-powered politics and a future in which online political participation can flourish. Join them on September 22nd when the time capsule will be closed and archived, and join online democracy experts government representatives to discuss the state of the Internet today, and what it might look like when the time capsule is opened in 2020, on OneWebDay's 15th anniversary.
