*Personal Democracy Forum 2011*

*June 6-7 | New York City*

This June 6-7, there's going to be only one place to be if you're interested
in how technology is changing advocacy, politics, and government -- the
eighth annual *Personal Democracy
Forum*<> (PdF)
in New York City.

PdF's theme this year is Agents of Change, with a major focus on how people
are making changing happen in places ranging from Tunisia and Egypt to
Madison, Wisconsin. These aren't "Facebook revolutions" or "Twitter
revolutions," they're people-powered and network-organized revolutions. The
two days of the conference will offer a mix of high-level keynotes (the kind
that other conferences charge thousands of dollars to hear) and intimate,
focused breakouts on how these net-powered leaders are bringing change to
politics and government, the conditions that such people need to engage in
effective change-making, and the prospects for the future as the
powers-that-be react.  See the
more information.
