OneWebDay (onewebday.org) is an Earth Day for the internet. The idea behind OneWebDay is to educate and create a global constituency that cares about protecting and defending the Internet. So, think of OneWebDay as an environmental movement for the Internet ecosystem. It’s a platform for people to educate and activate others about issues that are important for the Internet’s future.
Every year on September 22nd, cities the world over hold their own events to celebrate OneWebDay, and this year will include the inaugural Portland extension. In addition to music and speakers such as Ward Cunningham (inventor of the wiki), the pdx focus for OneWebDay will be on education - with topically focused booths intended to interactively showcase the possibilities for a wide array of online activities.
OneWebDay in Portland is a 100% volunteer-coordinated event, and we strongly encourage anyone interested in helping out to come to one of the planning meetings or participate on the wiki!
