In a bid to attract readers to its new site, Progressive Networks
a live online press conference today at 10 a.m. PT.
The site, dubbed WebActive: What's
New in Activism Online, is a weekly publication that offers activists
resources to find organizations and individuals with similar interests on
the Web. The site also includes articles about current activist projects.
The press conference will take place exclusively on the Net and will allow
participants to review an activist project involving rock group Pearl Jam and hear an
interview with consumer advocate Ralph Nader. Participants need at least a
14.4-kbps modem and RealAudio software.
