PdF2008 Schedule for June 24, Day Two

BY Joshua Sherman | Monday, June 9 2008

Here's the schedule for Day Two of Personal Democracy Forum, which is focused on how technology and the internet are changing governance and civic engagement. To register or find out more, go here.

As with Day One, we've planned a packed day that will start with a networking breakfast, and a fun door prize that you can only qualify for by being the main hall when the morning plenaries begin. Bring a laptop or other wifi-enabled device, as we'll have copious bandwith to enable you to blog, twitter, back-chat and otherwise connect with each other (though no downloading of big movie files will be tolerated). We'll provide breakfast, lunch, snacks, and most of all, a lot of nourishment for your mind.
