Announcing this year's PdF Google Fellows
BY Andel Koester | Friday, June 12 2009
Together with our friends at Google, we're happy to announce the twenty remarkable recipients of this year's Google Fellowship to the Personal Democracy Forum conference happening in New York on June 29-30.
This year's Google Fellows stood out from our largest and most competitive pool of applicants thus far. Fellows were chosen based on their experience in turning ideas into action and developing new applications of technology in the political or civic arena. This group of creative political entrepreneurs includes developers producing innovative solutions for local and national governments here and in the UK; the co-creator of The Great Schlep; an award-winning blogger for the labor movement; and one of the youngest elected officials in the State of New York.
