Abstract

Written remarks prepared for Grassroots Discussion Panel No. 3 on "Civil Society and Regulation" at the 2007 Conference of the International Communication Association. I review the history of my involvement on the Boards of Directors of two nonprofit organizations related to technology activism: Computer Professionials for Social Responsibility and LaborTech. I conclude with thoughts about the potential role online deliberation tools might play in shifting power in grassroots civil society.

Keywords: civil society, grassroots organizations, technology activism, online deliberation
