Our friends at Personal Democracy Forum (the folks who have been covering the convergence of politics and technology for years, and brought us TechPresident), have a special offer for ClickZ readers. PDF has a new premium membership section they say is “Perfect for anyone in politics, advocacy, and non-profits looking to harness the power of new technology and journalists looking to understand this transformation.”
Normally, there’s a fee to join, but PDF is offering the first 10 ClickZ readers to register to join for free. Members get blogging and commenting privileges, access to exclusive content like invite-only conference calls with industry experts, and a 1-year subscription to mags like The New Yorker and Wired.
Oh, and there’s a $60 discount on the upcoming 2009 Personal Democracy Forum event, which seems to get bigger and more relevant every year. (I’ll definitely be there this year – June 29 and 30 in NYC).
The members-only conference calls seem really promising, too. The next, “Politics at the Speed of Light: Campaign Tactics in the Digital Age,” will be held on April 2, and feature
Phil de Vellis, a senior associate and VP of new media for Murphy Putnam Media. He’s the guy who created the “Vote Different” ad.
Here’s what you need to do to get free membership to the PDF Network:
