Hey all, I've been invited to speak in Estonia on open government. I
currently specialize in inclusive civic engagement online.

This will be a return visit after being invited to help share
"e-democracy" trends nearly a decade ago. Today, of course, Estonia

neighbors online in London on the way home (Sat Nov 30). Details to

To make this Estonian leg possible, I need to add either some
additional sponsors or speaking events/trainings. I can do this in
Tallinn or perhaps over the weekend (Nov. 23-24) in Helsinki or Riga.
I am certainly open to other speaking options in N. Europe.

technology with projects like - http://BeNeighbors.org - and having a
family life(!), I spent over a decade speaking across 30 countries
introducing the early idea of "e-democracy" and open government with

We are really close to making this part of the trip economically
viable, but need to act relatively quickly.
