Event Details

Personal Democracy Media, in partnership with The Engage Network and NYU ITP, presents a flash conference:

From the Tea Party to Occupy Wall Street and Beyond:The Future of Networked Democracy

Across America and the world, millions of people are entering the public arena and, using social and collaborative media, forming powerful new networks for change. The result is a rising wave of challenges to the political order that are expanding the boundaries of political discourse and forcing new issues into the conversation. At this event, we’ll hear from leading organizers and observers of these new movements, and explore questions like:

  • Are these movements leaderless, or leaderfull? And either way, how do they make decisions?  
  • Are these movements working within the system or trying to create a new one?
  • Getting co-opted: A danger or a sign that you’re winning?
  • Is a group still its own worst enemy?
  • New media and over-communication: how do these movements manage the cacophony they help create?
  • Is networked democracy to top-down politics what citizen media is to broadcast media?
Join us to explore these questions with:
  • Ori Brafman, co-author, The Starfish and the Spider
  • Beka Economopolous, organizer, Occupy Wall Street
  • Alexis McGill Johnson, executive director, American Values Institute
  • Marianne Manilov, co-founder, The Engage Network
  • Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder, Tea Party Patriots
  • Mark Meckler, co-founder, Tea Party Patriots
  • Jessica Shearer, faith and labor organizer, Occupy Wall Street
  • Clay Shirky, NYU, author, Here Comes Everybody
  • Zeynep Tufekci, University of North Carolina

Moderated by Micah L. Sifry and Andrew Rasiej
