hey everyone,

i got clearance from yosem to give you all a final heads up about the
upcoming Contact Summit happening in nyc this october. it's kind of a 'take
back the net' theme, bringing together people who are working on initiatives
around p2p communication, value creation & exchange, social
entrepreneurship, and the general promise of a social web.

<name dropping section>

we have micah sifry & andrew rasiej from Personal Democracy Forum coming,
eli parisier from and others in the ‘gov 2.0’ space... we have a
bunch of people coming to demo the their tech projects - from FreedomBox,
Little Shoot, the Locker Project, Altly, Lantern, Tor, Telecomix, Project
Byzantium... and many initiatives in the spaces of social commerce,
learning, arts, and culture. (here are some participants & projects/organizations attending).

the day will start with a few brief ‘provocations’ to set the tone for the
day, then a bunch of participant-driven discussion sessions (unconference
style), and a 2 hour Bazaar, where people can demo their projects. we’re
also doing an Innovation Awards, where 3 projects will each be rewarded with
$10K prizes to help fund and accelerate their initiatives.

i just wanted to let everyone know about the event, and encourage anyone who
might be working on an innovative project to come and demo your wares. :)

registration is $245, but i’ve created a discount code for subscribers to
this list, which will give you a rate of $199.

discount code: LIBTECH46

those in need can also fill out the scholarship application for the
student/artist rate of $95, here (

hope i might meet some of you at the event. here’s the main site -->

let me know if you have any questions
