  • CitizenSpeak featured in new book

    It turns out that CitizenSpeak is really making the rounds right now. The latest news is that it’s included in a new book: Momentum: Igniting Social Change in the Connected Age by Allison Fine. The book includes a description of how a Philadelphia organization used CitizenSpeak and other online organizing tools to rally their community […]

  • I won the Pizzigati Prize for my work on CitizenSpeak!

    I’m completely stoked that I won the first annual Pizzigati Prize for non-profit open source software for my work on CitizenSpeak! The family of Antonio Pizzigati established the prize to reward open source developers in the non-profit sector.

  • CitizenSpeak Colophon

    There were two projects in getting CitizenSpeak up and running: Developing the CitizenSpeak module and creating the CitizenSpeak site. While they were intertwined, they also provided distinct educations. I found that the I18n module can serve dual purposes; it provides the Spanish language interface to the site as well as allowing us to customize standard […]

I’ll probably blog more about it later this […]

  • Give to CitizenSpeak (and me!)

    CitizenSpeak is a site that allows people to create email campaigns targeted at change, like the ultra-successful EFF campaign to stop the Broadcast Flag (that the EFF runs, not CitizenSpeak). It’s a tool that anyone can use, and activists at any level can use it to focus their community’s voice. And it’s free. If you […]
