Adriel Hampton is Joining NationBuilder
BY Nick Judd | Friday, May 6 2011
Hampton is a well-known figure in the Gov 2.0 community, a group of people who are focused on using technology, especially Internet technologies, to make government more efficient and responsive. His Gov2.0Radio program has been a platform for people like O'Reilly Media founder Tim O'Reilly, Craig Newmark (of craigslist, natch), and author William D. Eggers. Gilliam, of Brave New Films fame, just launched NationBuilder as a cheap, lightweight platform for activists to build and mobilize online communities in new ways — that is, with an emphasis on mobile, fundraising and social networking over older tactics like online petitions.
