Reflect, celebrate, drink: OneWebDay 08

Wash off your champagne glasses, and order your web buttons and bumper stickers to show off your webbiness on Sept. 22. That’s OneWebDay, the brainchild of University of Michigan law professor Susan Crawford. It’s a day of public events, talks, meetups and drinks worldwide intended to raise awareness of issues that are important for the Internet’s future – and to remind us that the web connects us to each other. Crawford describes it as Earth Day for the Internet.

This year’s theme is e-Democracy, which will be celebrated with live events around the world, such as YouTube video stations set up in Boston, an invitation-only program of talks in Copenhagen, and meetups with drinks in London. More listed here. Naturally, you can join in virtually with Facebook and Twitter, or post your One Web Day story here. A group in Washington, DC, is building an e-Democracy time capsule to record reflections on favorite web policies, people, organizations and tools.
