Come to Firecat Studio Monday, Sept. 22 for OneWebDay! Between 11am – 3pm, we’ll participate in the worldwide OneWebDay events, tell our own stories and celebrate the continued open, collaborative World Wide Web.
What is OneWebDay?
OneWebDay is an Earth Day for the internet. The idea behind OneWebDay is to focus attention on a key internet value (this year, online participation in democracy), focus attention on local internet concerns (connectivity, censorship, individual skills), and create a global constituency that cares about protecting and defending the internet. So, think of OneWebDay as an environmental movement for the Internet ecosystem. It?s a platform for people to educate and activate others about issues that are important for the Internet?s future.
Who supports OneWebDay?

Craig Newmark said, “OneWebDay reminds us that the net really is a democratizing medium, that everyone gets a chance to participate. If you want, you can stick your neck out and speak truth to power.? Tim Berners-Lee added, ?OneWebDay is about ?one web? . . . Let?s celebrate, and let?s constantly work to make more, better, cleaner, stronger, deeper interoperability across the planet.?
