About the USSF 2010 Technology Working Group

The Technology Working Group's purpose is to provide high level coordination, prioritizing, and decision making about the information and communications technology used in organizing the United States Social Forum in 2010. We welcome all members, regardless of technical skill or experience, to participate.

ICT working group members:

  • lead the US Social Forum in the development of its technology policies.
  • organize the progressive technology movement's participation in and support of the social forum movement.
  • protect and uphold the USSF technology principles.
  • create, maintain, and use tools with the organizing teams to facilitate internal and external communication.
  • raise consciousness about the political importance of technology to the social forum movement.

We recognize that technology development is not just one aspect or one part of organizing for the social forum, but is integrated into almost every working group, both nationally and locally. Our approach is work collaboratively with all other working groups on developing the technology they need, assign technically skilled volunteers to each of the working groups, and help coordinate the work of the tech volunteers through the forum.

More information about the ICT is available in our answer to the working group questions proposed by the NPC.
