Personal Democracy Forum: On Transitions of Power

I never thought I would hear the best talk on Transitions of Power at a tech conference… but I learn new things every day.

Last week I attended the Personal Democracy Forum, not knowing exactly what to expect. I left feeling inspired and so excited about the work that people and businesses interested in Civic Tech were doing.

The curators for the event, Micah Sifry and Andrew Rasiej found and produced one of the best conferences I’ve ever been to. The content was excellent (truly exceptional).

My favorite speakers and topics surprised me. Especially this one by Danny O’Brien, who weaves together the rich history of his fight for freedom of the internet… and the important of transitioning power. He is funny and high energy… and humble. I am inspired to take a similar lens to my own life and projects. I’ll say no more…
