One Web DayCelebrate OneWebDay - The Earth Day for the Internet


Activities all day long! Uber-Jelly Jam Barcampian Melange


The idea behind OneWebDay is to encourage people to think of themselves as responsible for the internet, and to take good and visible actions on Sept. 22 that (1) celebrate the positive impact of the internet on the world and (2) shed light on the problems of access and information flow.


OneWebDay is a global, decentralized event. We're encouraging people around the world to meet up on Sept. 22 to talk about the threats to the net and how the web could change lives around the world in the future.


Our Austin event features a day-long extended uber-Jelly, featured speakers and interviews about how the Web has changed lives.  In addition to our speakers (list developing) we'll be asking attendees:


  • how the web has changed your life
  • how you'd like the web to change the world in the future
  • your favorite online event ever
  • something you've done online with other people in other countries

and posting our clips on YouTube, Blip.tv and dotSub.com as part of a global video mashup.
