I’m looking forward to tonight’s Personal Democracy Forum General Election 2010 â€“ Action Replay at the Royal Society of the Arts.
Speakers include two the leading political strategists in the USA – Mindy Finn and Joe Trippi, along with PDF’s founder Andrew Rasiej. From the UK there is Stella Creasy MP, Labour’s new MP in Walthamstow and the senior strategists behind the online campaigns from the three main parties: Labour’s Mark Hanson, (Deputy MD of Wolfstar and Labour new media strategist), Conservative’s Craig Elder (Online Communities Editor at the Conservative Party) and the Liberal Democrat’s Mark Pack (Head of Digital at Mandate Communications and co-editor Lib Dem Voice www.LibDemVoice.org). There’s also Harry Cole (editor of ToryBear.com), Anthony Painter (commentator and journalist), Alberto Nardelli (creator of Tweetminster) and Prospect Magazine’s James Crabtree.
The event will be chaired by Charlie Beckett the Director of POLIS.
The organisers say It’s seriously oversubscribed, even with a waiting list and overflow room. If you aren’t on the guest list you can still follow it at Amplified (there will be live streaming of the event and I presume the link will appear here.)
The hash tag to follow it on Twitter is #pdfge2010.
