Starting with a town hall meeting this Friday at
MIT<http://www.digitalmediaconference.org/2011/node/11>,
and then a full day of hands-on
workshops<http://digitalmediaconference.org/2011/taxonomy/term/1>on
Saturday, the Digital Media Conference, themed, “Social Movements and
Digital Revolutions,” connects some of the most important organizing work
and our latest digital tools. Aimed at movement organizers, activists and
progressive techies, this conference is imbued with the spirit of the
#Occupy movement but links with ongoing peace, pro-immigrant, worker and
democracy organizing.

See the conference schedule<http://www.digitalmediaconference.org/2011/node/12>
.

Our workshop list
<http://digitalmediaconference.org/2011/taxonomy/term/1>caters to both
beginners and more advanced organizers and techies. Topics
range from using social media, to organizing food co-ops, to local versions
of Wikileaks, to pro-immigrant mobile tech.
