PDF12: The TED Talks Of Online Democracy

A regular read here at Grassroots Online are the articles, blog posts and videos courtesy of the Personal Democracy Forum.  A personal favorite is TechPresident, which focuses primarily on politics and advocacy in the digital space.  

This week, the Personal Democracy Forum held their annual Conference, PDF12, which featured a number of great speakers touching on a wide variety of topics around digital engagement.  One notable speaker was Zac Moffatt, the head of digital for GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney (click below to view).
