You already know that the Internet is an excellent forum for democratic
communication, but do you understand the critical issues associated with the
Web's exploding popularity in this realm?

Find out what the experts had to say at The Democracy Online Project's
Public National Task Force Testimony Sessions. The National Task Force,
part of the Democracy Online Project, which is funded by a grant from The
Pew Charitable Trusts, seeks to arrive at a set of ideas to promote a
vibrant online public space for political communication in the United States. The public testimony sessions, comprised of experts from think tanks, policy
institutes, politics, journalism and the high-tech industry, have been a
crucial part of the deliberations of the National Task Force overall.

They provided testimony with insights on topics including e-politics and
privacy, the commercialization of online politics, politically engaging the
generations online, and the digital divide.
