Do you have any stories of digital activism to share?

    Over at the Meta-Activism Project, Mary Joyce, who I had the pleasure of getting to know in Boston this summer, has launched an ambitious all-volunteer effort to catalog as many case studies on digital activism as possible.

    These stories are being entered into the Global Digital Activism Data Set (GDADS), a “non-proprietary quantitative machine-readable data set,” that I think will be of great use to activists and scholars wanting to learn more about this budding field.

    The spreadsheet, which recently hit 500 cases, along with a selection of fleshed out case studies can be found here. And of course, if you know a story that isn’t on their list, submit a case study of your own!
