If you are interested in how to use the Web to create a grassroots political movement, tune in today and tomorrow to the Alliance of Youth Movements Summit, which is being sponsored and livestreamed by Howcast. Right now, James K. Glassman, Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs, just finished talking about How To Build a Movement Against Terrorism and up next is Oscar Morales, an engineer deom Columbia who set up a Facebook group called One Million Voices Against the FARC that organized in mass demonstrations on the street in that country.
Tomorrow morning there is a panel with Obama’s media team that will explore how they used teh Web to win the U.S Presidential election. You can see the entire schedule here.
