You might have noticed that the majority of what people are calling digital organizing is, well…not really organizing.
In the past year, many organizations and campaigns have adapted their organizing work online, navigating the various challenges and complexities of organizing digitally. But most of the existing “digital organizing” efforts out there are mainly focused on communications, social media, and mobilizing.
So, is digital organizing a farce?
Before we throw the baby out with the bath water, let’s ask ourselves:
- Is there any unrealized potential for organizing online?
- Can we ever approximate the development of relationships in the same way we do offline?
- What does it mean to truly organize online?
Come explore these questions, and more, in our session on September 27th with Ned Howey, the CEO and co-founder of Tectonica.
