Blawg Review, the OneWebDay Edition

Phew! I nearly missed OneWebDay. Must have neglected to calendar it. Fortunately, Peter Black brings it to our attention via his hosting of Blawg Review #178 today at his blog, Peter Black's Freedom to Differ. As Black, a lecturer in law at Australia's Queensland University of Technology, explains, OneWebDay was founded three years ago by Susan Crawford, professor of law at the University of Michigan, as a sort of "Earth Day for the internet." He provides this description taken from the OneWebDay Web site:

The idea behind OneWebDay is to focus attention on a key internet value (this year, online participation in democracy), focus attention on local internet concerns (connectivity, censorship, individual skills), and create a global constituency that cares about protecting and defending the internet.  So, think of OneWebDay as an environmental movement for the Internet ecosystem. It's a platform for people to educate and activate others about issues that are important for the Internet's future.

In the spirit of the day, Black's edition of Blawg Review "seeks to celebrate the best in legal blogging and the contribution it makes to informed debate in so many different areas (not just the law)." The posts he features touch on such topics as the economy, society, politics, technology, education, fun and even fashion.
