Ben Rigby of Mobile Voter, and the folks from Rock the Vote have just written a new book, Mobilizing Generation 2.0: A Practical Guide to Using Web 2.0 Technologies to Recruit, Organize and Engage Youth. I haven't received my copy yet, so no review (yet), but Ben has kindly offered to give me a book for a book giveaway. Here's the table of contents if you want to learn more about what's inside. (I contributed a big picture essay in one of the chapters)
(On a related note, I also got word from Allison Fine that she has released a new paper commissioned by The Case Foundation about the emergence of Millennials, 15-29 year olds, as activists. It is about how these young people are using all of their widgets and gadgets for causes. Here's more about what's in the paper and what isn't. You can grab the paper from this cool Sprout Widget.)
Anyway, I'm giving away a copy of Ben's book. Here's how it will work.
1.) Leave a comment in this post about why you want the book and how you might use it
2.) Leave your comment before May 9th, 2008 at midnight EST
3.) We'll pick a winner by random and announce the following week
