The Internet is my Religion

Something worth 12 minutes of your time

In darkened rooms, staring into bright screens, we may fantasize about making a difference as we blog away.

Jim Gilliam's presentation at the Personal Democracy Forum 2011 puts that fantasy into a real-life example.

The Internet is My Religion

TechPresident provides a summation:

Religion at a conference about technology in politics?

A personal life story on the same stage that saw heady talk about statecraft and Internet infrastructure?

A guy staring out at rows of faces tilted downwards at laptops, not up at him — at least at first — and explaining that he can feel Christ in the wi-fi?

Unexpected. Transgressive. Radical, because it was painfully sincere.
