One Web Day is a comin’

Someone asked me the other day if I still think the Web has not been hyped enough. Damn straight. This thing is bigger than all of us put together. We’ve only just begun to figure out how to take advantage of our new connectedness of ideas and people. It’s worth a little celebrating, don’t you think?

That’s what One Web Day is about. And it’s coming up on September 22, which means it’s time to start organizing something in your community.

OneWebDay

As with Earth Day, it’s up to each community — real-world or online — to decide how to celebrate OWD, but you’re encouraged to do something that will add value to the Web. Bring the Net to some people who don’t yet have it. Post works that tell local stories or that encourage others to be creative. Support politically what you consider to be the core values of the Web. (OWD is non-partisan.)

Woohoo! The Web! Woohoo! One Web Day!

  1. […] You can read the full post here. […]

  2. as much as I love the internet and the sort of collective consciousness it has made possible- I’m really also waiting for the phase to roll about when people might be freed of the desk/cubicle. The spaces and ways in which we USE the internet are still extremely un-ideal… which makes me think that this may be looked upon as a very dark period in human development, it is possible that many years from now people will think: “can you believe they sat hunched over a desktop over 40 hours a week? how miserable is that???”
    Granted there are new devices that are making this unshackled workstyle more possible, but it still seems to be a primarily US thing, right? Would also be nice if other parts of the world seemed to be more un-wired… (oh, on the other hand, can’t help but think: how spoiled this all sounds.)
    Nevertheless… how to celebrate the internet? I think I might try to NOT use the internet on that day and then write a big fat post the next day about what happened the day I didn’t use the internet… taking a break is refreshing, and also makes one appreciate it more, oder?
