LIO Fellow George Donnelly and young friend.
LIO Fellow pan-American activist George Donnelly has announced a call for speakers worldwide on Libertarian-interest themes of spontaneous and bottom-up social order, non-authoritarian and open source management, and stateless social communities at an innovative web "Un-Conference" whose very structure demonstrates the concept.
Participants will confer via web from their own homes or project venues in a platform using some of the latest technology to encourage synergy in networking, ease of participation, open source exchange and innovation and more in a best-practice model. Tools include channels, blogs, a brainstorming wiki, and local meet-up facilitation.
The Un-Conference Facebook has at press attracted over 200 interested fans worldwide. Mr. Donnelly is a human rights activist and social media consultant whose campaigns have assisted a wide variety of causes. He is also a collaborator with Thoreau Media.
