- Facebook | we20 – the best reason to get your friends together this year – Do you know about the we20 project? A great example of organizing on the social web. "we20 meetings will create people plans, policy plans, business plans and other plans on local, national and global issues. The recession is focusing minds. What change do you want to create? Give your meeting a title and agenda or go with the flow. We're excited about what we can do! Members of we20.org will be awarded 20 votes to place on their favorite plans. Once we20 meets critical mass (and we sort our lives out), we will help you to implement your plans using web applications and partnerships." Check out the Facebook Group for more information.
