Our excellent colleagues at Big Duck (which is an erstwhile communications firm working with nonprofits) recently conducted an interview with me for their podcast series. We chat about mobile strategies, some things mobiles are good (and not so good for) and how people can think about getting started who want to reach their constituents where they are. Listen to the interview here.
Links mentioned in the podcast are here.
Catherine and Katrin will both be speaking at Personal Democracy Forum in New York June 23 and 24. Katrin will be moderating and Catherine will be a participant in a panel on mobile politics that will be examining what has and hasn’t been successful for mobile political organizing this year. We’ll also explore what to expect as we move into the Fall campaign season. More details and other panelists coming soon!
