Consulting and Experience

Consulting and Experience

I am honored to now serve as an Ashoka Fellow.  I agreed to give up my private long-term consulting and research projects in exchange for their support of my full-time work with E-Democracy.Org through July 2009. After that date my consulting services will again be available directly from me or through E-Democracy.Org depending upon the nature of the project.

Projects that fit within the expansive mission of E-Democracy.Org are ideal and help support our important work. See About E-Democracy.Org for contact details.

Short-term public speaking visits on e-democracy topics, particularly on the popular “Global E-Democracy Trends” topic remain available on a fee-basis.

Speaking requests related to E-Democracy.Org, particularly Issues Forums, should be sent in via E-Democracy.Org.

Services Provided

  • Public speaking and short-term onsite consulting is my main focus. I have an entire section dedicated to my public speaking activity.
  • Strategic advice, outreach, training and research on e-democracy, online consultation, e-governance, communities online, and related trends. DO-WIRE is my only “free” one-size fits all service. If you need specific advice or ongoing consulting I have minimum fee requirements for both one time and long-term relationships.
  • Effective design and/or facilitation of e-mail lists for discussion, outreach, or collaborative work and communication.
  • Specialized “online consultations and events” on public policy topics using e-mail and the web.  In 1998, I organized the one thousand participant online Universal Access Conversation for the Markle Foundation.  I recently added a presentation about online consultation to my portfolio.
  • Media source for hundreds of newspapers, radio stations, and television stations around the world.  Since 1994, I have been interviewed by such outlets as the CNN International, New York Times, USA Today, Newsweek, Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, UK Guardian, Japan’s Asahi Simbum, National Public Radio, BBC Radio 4, ZDF televison in Germany and Australian Broadcasting. I provide an insightful hype-reduced non-partisan overview of democracy/politics/governance and the Internet.
