Hi! I've signed up for this list and look forward to the Oekonux
conference. I share a letter that I wrote to several other groups, in
I appreciate thoughts on how we might take the opportunity of the
Oekonux conference to "get things done". I've set up a system WOW
http://www.primarilypublicdomain.org/1.html for "working openly" and
would like to apply that to helping us connect at Oekonux!
I'm preparing for the Oekonux conference May 20-23
we will come to Vienna, Austria with a carload of Lithuanians. I'm
preparing for my workshop on "infrastructure for virtual flash mobs".
I'd like to do some of that in practice by simply encouraging connection
with two other events in the same spirit. One is BeTheChange.Org.UK
that will take place May 19-21 in London, so perhaps there can be some
online flow of ideas between our two events.
Already, I want to thank BeTheChange organizers Colin Morley,
Christopher Cooke and Nick Hart-Williams for arranging free entry for
Josef Davies-Coates to http://www.BeTheChange.Org.UK And I look forward
to our events carrying momentum over to WTF2 http://wtfcon.org also in
How can we get the word out? I'm CC'ing London artist Natalie
d'Arbeloff http://www.nataliedarbeloff.com/blaugustine.html perhaps she
Also, perhaps some of our bloggers at Ecademy could offer some thoughts
and links in support. Lets find steps that we can take as we
work-in-parallel at these events.
I've set up WOW and I look forward to using that to flesh out and merge
our activity to "work openly" at these events and elsewhere. In
particular, I'll be creating a questionnaire which I hope we might
translate into German, Arabic and other languages. It will include
questions about contact info, web presence, interests, capabilities,
availability for work, etc. that might help us work openly. I want to
do this at Oekonux, and afterwards apply this for ERDE and for One
Village, and present this all back in Lithuania at a WorldBank showcase
where we're participating.
Life is quite hectic for all of our organizers. Thank you to us all for

Christopher and Nick This seems like a very good offer.
Sounds like Josef can provide us with some valuable help in the online
organisation of Be the Change. And some good further links.
Nick can you arrange the free entry for Josef?
And Christopher can you contact Josef to talk about IT?
One free ticket on it's way.

Thank you for your letter about http://www.BeTheChange.org.uk !
I've linked to your event Be The Change from our WOW (Working Openly
WOW) system: http://www.primarilypublicdomain.org/977.html
I'm interested, How might our Open People network (and participants at
Minciu Sodas, Espians, United Diversity...) help you develop online
activity before, during and after Be The Change?
Specifically, we might help you get the word out. We could also advise
you how to structure your online activity for best synergy with our many
initiatives (specifically, how to keep it, as much as possible, within
the Public Domain). We could also help weave your activity into that of
other events throughout the year, starting with WTF 2 on May 29th in
which might serve as a follow up for those you energize. We might also,
during your event, have some back and forth activity with the Oekonux
conference in Vienna, Austria where I'll be. The Espians might
facilitate this through their chat and wiki in the Public Domain. We're
also interested to work closer with Ecademy.
If you might be interested, then I suggest that we have Josef
of United Diversity and Espians serve as our leader for our work
together. Could you provide him, please, with a free pass to Be The Change?
In preparation for your big event next year, we hope to find ways that
we might leverage the resources of our Open People network to build
momentum for constructive action. There is a lot that we might do, for
free and/or for pay, to organize online locations and mobilize us all to
I share some of our letters with our lab

Thank you to Ed Daniel and Chric Macrae for connecting us.
