Personal Democracy Forum
October 25th, 2004

Democracy in America is changing.

A new force, rooted in new tools and practices built on and around the Internet, is rising alongside the old system of capital-intensive broadcast politics.

Today, for almost no money, anyone can be a reporter, a community organizer, an ad-maker, a publisher, a money-raiser, or a leader.

If what they have to say is compelling, it will spread.

So begins the manifesto that drives the recently-launched Personal Democracy Forum, the online counterpart to the annual Personal Democracy Conference, the first of which was held earlier this year. The site also runs feature articles, the first of which is Will Congress Outlaw Your iPod? by Cory Doctorow.
