Founded by Susan Crawford, who now advises President Obama on science,
technology, and innovation policy, OneWebDay is an annual, global
event which is celebrated every September 22 since 2006. Much like
Earth Day, which inspired it, OneWebDay provides an opportunity for
communities to celebrate the power of Web for positive change, to take
action to protect what is precious about it, and to educate the public
and policy-makers on key social, economic, and political Web issues.
This year's theme -- One Web. For All -- is all about digital
inclusion, digital literacy, and working to close the digital divide.
OneWebDay organizers will call attention to efforts that work to
ensure that anyone who wants it has access to the Internet and the
skills they need to engage in our new communications environment.
OneWebDay is organized locally by volunteers and coordinated globally
by OneWebDay, Inc. and their partner organizations. Already, groups
all over the world, from Philadelphia to the Philippines are gearing
up for the strongest OneWebDay ever. Check out

have gotten started. While there, be sure to join the OWD Columbus
