Here's what we're talking about at techPresident on Internet Freedom Day: The "existential threat" to the Internet that was SOPA/PIPA isn't the only kind of cause that carries across the web. On the flipside, advocates seemed to have trouble creating as much fervor over the ITU fight in December than we saw a year ago today.

So what makes an issue or a campaign into something that really carries online? Here's a quick look at what we're thinking. What are your thoughts?

There are "benighted corners of the news cycle?" Cycles are round and don't have corners. "We wield a weird sword these days?" As opposed to the jailhouse shank that nobody said anything about? "... [L]ots of posts is the low-hanging fruit in the orchard of traffic?" You don't need to bend over backwards like this just to reach subject-verb agreement, that easily uprooted potato in the garden of grammar.

There are lots of problems with technology journalism, but could we start, please, by fixing issues of style and usage?

So I'm on the phone with a reporter with the Financial Times, working from home, and what do I see? This. I had to pause the interview to laugh and show my wife -- fortunately the reporter was a good sport.

How do social media change the conditions for civic and political mobilization?
(Enjolras, Steen-Johnsen & Wollebæk 2012)

This paper examines how the expansion of online social media affects offline civic and political mobilization. Based on individual web survey data on participation in demonstrations and on social media use in Norway, we ask whether social media transform individual level and structural level conditions for mobilization. Our results show that social media impacts on individual agency in relation to demonstrations, in particular on the access to information and the interest in participating. Further, being connected to information structures through social media has a strong and independent effect on mobilization, and must be conceived as a supplement both to established organizational society and to mainstream media. Finally, our analysis shows that there are significant differences between those who are mobilized to demonstrations through social media and those who are mobilized through established civil society and political organizations, since participants mobilized through social media are characterized by lower socio-economic status and younger age. A similar pattern occurs when social media mobilization is compared to mobilization through mainstream and other media. Based on our findings we therefore argue that a transformation of civic and political mobilization may be underway. Social media seem to represent an alternative structure alongside mainstream media and established political and civil society that recruits in different ways and that reaches different types of people. If so, this is a different finding from what has been concluded in relation to the impact of the Internet (web 1.0.) on political engagement, where the re-enforcement thesis has so far received quite substantial support.

Introduction
I'm the managing editor of techPresident, the news site produced by Personal Democracy Media.

TechPresident covers how technology is changing politics, government, and civic life, and a little bit about how the reverse is also true.

Prior to working for PDM, I was a local politics reporter in New York and New Jersey. I covered politics in the Bronx, N.Y., and in Hudson County, N.J., from 2007 to 2009. I also did a stint as a research assistant at an urban policy think tank in New York. I'm a native of Santa Rosa, Calif. and hold a bachelor's degree in journalism and metropolitan studies from New York University.
