Email etiquette for virtual collectives
Recently Rich, Ben and I had the opportunity to spend time with the remarkable Cristina Flesher Fominaya, activist, academic and author of Social Movements and Globalization: How Protests, Occupations and Uprisings are Changing the World. Christina has written a great blog post on ways to counteract the potential negative impact of email use on participation and collective identity for activists trying to work horizontally.
I thought this might be of interest to some community members. Many of the points are applicable to the use of other digital tools (e.g Loomio), and relevant to the question of how we live the change we wish to see in the world.
I invite you all to read and would be keen to hear your thoughts! :)
