Subject: [Ocmembers] THIS WEEKEND: Digital Media and Grassroots Use of
Technology Conferences
To: ocmembers at lists.oc-tech.org


Folks,
A reminder that this weekend the Digital Media and Grassroots Use of
Technology Conferences are happening in Cambridge.  Check out
schedules and information here - http://www.grassrootstech.org.
Starting with a town hall meeting this Friday at MIT, and then a full
day of hands-on workshops on Saturday, the Digital Media and
Grassroots Uses of Technology Conference, themed, “Social Movements
and Digital Revolutions,” connects some of the most important
organizing work and our latest digital tools. Aimed at movement
organizers, activists and progressive techies, this conference is
imbued with the spirit of the #Occupy movement but links with ongoing
peace, pro-immigrant, worker and democracy organizing.

The workshop list caters to both beginners and more advanced
organizers and techies. Topics range from using social media, to
organizing food co-ops, to local versions of Wikileaks, to
pro-immigrant mobile tech.

The Friday plenary (MIT) brings together some of the finest minds
thinking about media, technology and their implications for democracy.
It includes a New York Times journalist, documentarians and a leader
of Free Press.

On Saturday (Lesley University), the lunchtime plenary asks hard
questions about the #Occupy movement with its local organizers,
participants from the Wisconsin Wave, observers of the European
mobilizations and community-based thinkers.

Sunday features self-organized event spaces and follow-up meetings on
a per event request basis (contact organizers -
info at digitalmediaconference.org).

Social Movements & Digital Revolutions: Visit the conference website
to check out the workshops, learn about our #Occupy mega-plenary,
