web.illish.us — the multifaceted event series to support net neutrality — continues tonight with Episode II: Digitalove. web.illish.us is a partnership between realizePhiladelphia and FMC, with proceeds going to our Rock the Net campaign for net neutrality. The events take place at Silk City in Philadelphia on the third Wednesday of the month through February 18, 2009.
Digitalove goes live on December 17, at 9PM (tonight!), and features musical acts Lo Life (members of Brothers Past, Biodiesel and MJ Project), Dialects (members of Burndown All Stars) and Dephonic. DJs Law One and Ras Heights will keep the party going in between live sets.
The theme this time around is digital inclusion — which is the idea of equal broadband access for everyone, no matter what background or walk of life. Todd Wolfson of Media Mobilizing Project will lead a discussion about this important concept, featuring Beth McConnell of the Media and Democracy Coalition, the Reverend Jesse Brown and Phuong Ninh of the Philadelphia Student Union. Charles Gregory of 3 Guys Don?t Lie will once again play host.
One of the coolest things about web.illish.us is the fact that you don‘t have to attend. What? You read that right — the shows are all live webcast. There?s even a live chat that lets you connect with all the other remote viewers.
