Rasiej Wins eDemocracy 2008 Award in Paris
BY Micah L. Sifry | Friday, October 17 2008
Here's a big Friday afternoon trans-Atlantic cheer for my partner Andrew Rasiej, founder of Personal Democracy Forum and co-founder and publisher of this blog. He just won an "eDemocracy 2008" award from the World eDemocracy Forum at its ninth annual meeting in Paris. The forum's organizers cited his work founding MOUSE in New York City, which trains thousands of students to be school system administrators; his service on a city task force addressing the broadband needs and the digital divide (humorously translated as the "numeric gap!"); his longstanding efforts to advise US politicians on tech issues; and his founding of PdF and techPresident. Kudos, Andrew!
