Thanks to Doc for helping Ethan Zuckerman and me advertise for Internet vets to vet the accumulating activism tools for our nascent Open Republic effort. Since all but my 15 readers have missed this groundswell, the back story is that a small bunch of us are looking for volunteers to serve on one of three blue ribbon advisory panels (your reward will be a blue ribbon and a certificate suitable for framing).
If you’re interested in so serving, please comment below or send me an email specifying which board you wish to serve on. Naturally, each board will hire experts to do the grunt work, so your work is to be a grizzled veteran whom the foundation will honor and publicize for your wisdom and insight.
Don’t be shy! Step right up if you feel qualified and energized. For those who know that Ethan or I will be contacting you, well, this would be the time to make a great show of grace and noblesse oblige and step right up. You have been warned…
