David Taylor is the founder and director of Radical Designs, a software development company focused on meeting the technological needs of grassroots social movement organizations. He has spent the last nine years building cutting edge websites, online organizing tools and web based mobilization strategies for over 200 social movement organizations, nonprofits, and political campaigns. When not building websites, David is a direct action trainer, and mass mobilization organizer, for the anti-globalization, anti-war, environmental and global justice movements as well as a political strategist for local progressive electoral campaigns in San Francisco.
Jon Warnow is an online organizer and technology coordinator whose most recent project was Step It Up, a campaign to unite communities for on-the-ground action on climate change. In 2007, this web-based project helped to unleash the inner-activist in regular people by experimenting with a model of "open-source activism" that creates deeper engagement, an empowered constituency, and more effective results. By catalyzing and coordinating over 2000 synchronized off-line actions, the Step It Up campaign was able to channel the simmering concerns of a citizenry into a powerful, unified, politically strategic call to action.
Fresh out of college in Vermont, Jon is relatively new to the technology and non-profit scene, and is fascinated by both the hollow hype and the powerful potential of web-enabled activism. He's still doing his damndest to use the best of the web to get people to take effective action on the greatest challenge of our time--climate change. Currently, Jon and his co-conspirators are gearing up to launch an international campaign that harnesses our most promising technologies to build a truly global climate movement--and he wants you to help.
