Civic Space
Jamais Cascio, 11 May 04

WorldChanging ally Jon Stahl encourages us to keep an eye on CivicSpace, a continuation of the DeanSpace project assembled for the Howard Dean campaign. It's an attempt to build a web toolkit for organizing grassroots action (and we mentioned its existence, but few of the details, back in April).

They'll be rolling it out in mid-June, but the site now gives a preview of what they intend to provide to users:

  • Create a customizable community driven website with Blogs, Photo Galleries, User Profiles, Friend / Buddy Tracking, Polls, and File Storage
  • Send targeted email
  • Import and aggregate remote content, share users, and sync calendars with any other CivicSpace site
  • Manage your groups membership and contacts
  • Organize events, ride sharing, and RSVP
  • Collaboratively create, edit, and publish documents
  • Easily create discussion forum / mailing lists
  • Allow you to create forms and surveys for data collection
  • VoterID/GOTV

It looks to be a good draft of a web-based activist movement toolkit.
