Online Advocacy and Lobbying Webcast

This event was hosted by E-Democracy <http://e-democracy.org> and the
Institute for New Media Studies <http://www.inms.umn.edu> at the
University of Minnesota.

Have you ever wondered:

- What were the top e-mails received by Governor Jesse Ventura?
- What people think when an interest group doesn't have a website?
- What is an advanced collaborative online advocacy network?
- What is online advocacy and lobbying anyway?

If so, then listen to the online advocacy webcast from:

Or directly from:

The webcast includes audio with Power Point slides in Real format or
audio-only for download in MP3.  Short and to the point panelist
presentations were followed by audience questions and an engaging
discussion and debate.

This is one of the best panel sessions ever held on this topic in
general, and likely the only one freely available on the Internet.

lessons learned here are valuable everywhere.
