Happy OneWebDay

OneWebDayI got up early on this Saturday just to wish you all a Happy OneWebDay.

What am I talking about?

The mission of OneWebDay is to create, maintain, advance and promote a global day to celebrate online life: September 22

So…

Leave your mark online, directly or indirectly. Do a blog post, or a video, about the most interesting thing you’ve seen online recently. Teach someone how to edit a wiki or send a link to a digital photo. Find a way to help more people get online. The internet is made up of all of these individual contributions – it’s a social world, and much more than just a collection of machines.

The central goal of OneWebDay is to encourage people not to take the internet for granted. It’s under threat around the world from a variety of directions, and it’s up to people (just like you) to recognize that these threats exist, that we have a shared responsibility for the future of the internet, and that a global, interoperable internet is important to all of us.
