Given who's organizing this, I'm going to assume (possibly unfairly --
so correct me if I'm wrong) that most speakers, etc. are white. By
"voices of others" do you mean those who aren't?
Do you know if there will be people from CMJ (or at least MAGNet)
participating do you know? What about local organizations like Digital
Stewards? Heck...what about May First/People Link whose principal
spokesperson is an African-Indigenous Puerto Rican -- me. :-)
I think getting women into these things is critical. Our community is
plagued by rampant and often vicious sexism and so it's important to
counter and struggle against that. I'm just raising the racial aspect
because it's very very very seldom raised which we need to change.
