Decentralized Organizing (Penguicon 2017)

"Groups like Occupy in the US and Podemos in Spain have created large-scale movements without a traditional, top-down leadership structure. But are they successful? (Spoiler: yes, just in different ways.) These “leaderless” -- or more accurately “leaderful” -- movements have been able to grow quickly and create large-scale demonstrations without needing grants or full time staff. How’d they do that? Come learn techniques you can use, and how they can be applied within the free/open software community." (slides, sticky notes)
