The Canadian organizers of One Web Day have announced that OneWebDay is September 22 every year, starting in 2006.
So what’s with OneWebDay?
The idea is that the Web is worth celebrating.
OneWebDay will be one day a year when we all – everyone around the physical globe – can celebrate the Web and what it means to us as individuals, organizations, and communities.
As with Earth Day – an inspiration and model for OneWebDay – it’s up to the celebrants to decide how to celebrate. They encourage all celebrations! Collaboration, connection, creativity, freedom.
By the end of the day, the Web should be just a little bit better than it was before, and perhaps we’ll be able to see our connection to it more clearly.
So far, according to Larry Lessig, OneWebDay will be celebrated in New York’s Bryant Park, San Francisco’s Union Square, in London with the Lord Mayor, near City Hall in Austin, in downtown Chicago, in downtown Portland, Maine, all over Canada, and in Naples (Italy), and Canberra (Australia).
How will you mark its coming?
