How to Celebrate OneWebDay
Celebrate the Internet on on September 22. OneWebDay is recognized yearly, similar to Earth Day. The goal is to hold a global celebration of online life.
The Internet has changed each of our lives. We need to recognize how important it is to us by celebrating and publicly showing how it has affected our lives. Here are some ways you can show the web is worth using, protecting, and, of course, celebrating.
Make the Online World Visible Offline
Organize, with your neighbors, to integrate the web into your community.Find out the email addresses of your neighbors and start a neighborhood mailing list. Create a neighborhood blog. Add pictures of your community - local businesses, parks, or events. Ask each resident to write a few words about themselves, and add their email and photos. This could give them the opportunity to recognize and communicate with each other, even though they may not have met before in their own neighborhood.
Form a committee in your church or city council to push for free municipal wi fi.Help make the Internet available to all.
Celebrate in San Francisco, Sofia, Bulgaria, or even New York - or any of the other cities around the world where OneWebDay celebrations will be held.If your city is left out, form your own party!
Tell friends and family about your favorite websites.Inform people about what they can do using the Internet.
Celebrate in and Improve the Online World
Email a friend you met online and ask them to celebrate this day by watching an Internet video together, simultaneously from different computers.
Email or IM a friend you know from your daily (not online) life, informing them of OneWebDay.
Contribute to a wiki, such as Wikipedia or wiki-How.Collaborate with thousands of people around the world to build a free resource that millions of people read, write, and use.
Upload your latest photos to a photo site or blog and send them to your mom.She will thank you.
IM or email favorite bloggers, wiki editors, artists and webmasters to thank them for their contributions to the Internet.
Write a blog entry about what the Internet means to you, including your favorite sites and a description of things you've done using the web that you wouldn't be able to do otherwise.
Make a donation to an organization that supports online culture and the Internet.
Research laws and pending legislature about the Internet that affect you on the local, state, and/or national level.Sign petitions online regarding legislation about the Internet.
- Many of us use the internet as an integral part of our lives but aren't aware of legislative changes that may affect our online experience; read up on , and form your own opinion.
- Celebrating in public places makes our connection to the web something for everyone to notice collectively. The web is worth celebrating and protecting. It is a vibrant part of our world, belonging to no one person or country. The web is 'us', therefore, it is up to 'us' to protect it - and to celebrate it!
