Civic Media Lunch: Nicco Mele, "Participatory Media and the 2012 Election"

(Our humble apologies for the background pinging.)

Nicco Mele, from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, will talk about participatory media and the roles it will play in the upcoming election. He'll look at ways in which citizens can effectively move beyond money and mailing lists to deeper involvement in the political process, and give us his take on organizing (Occupy, Tea Party) outside of traditional electorally-focused structures.

Nicco is a leading expert in the integration of social media and Web 2.0 with politics, business and communications.

As the webmaster for Governor Howard Dean’s 2004 presidential race, Nicco and the campaign team pioneered the use of technology and social media that revolutionized political fundraising and American politics. Later that year, Nicco founded EchoDitto, a leading internet strategy consulting company. Through EchoDitto, Nicco continues to consult with Fortune 500 companies and nonprofit groups.
