Bryan Farrell and I will be running a workshop at the Gandhi-King Conference in Memphis, which begins on October 22. We will be speaking about our experience with this site, some of the interesting things we’ve dug up over the last year, and the role that blogging and new media can play in supporting nonviolent movements. If any of you can make it, or are already planning on attending, it would be wonderful to meet you. To learn more about the conference or to register, click here. And I hope to see you in Memphis!
