Next Generation Democracy: What the Open Source Revolution Means for Power, Politics and Change explores the parallels between the open-source ethic – marked by transparency and open participation and made famous by Linux and Wikipedia – and the preferred model of organizing and engagement among the rising under-30 generation, the Millennials. Sharing the stories of participatory organizations such as SeeClickFix and AmericaSpeaks, the book goes on to show how it is increasingly possible to solve complex problems by drawing on the contributions of vast and diverse communities of citizens. PACE member organization The Orton Family Foundation is also featured in what author Bill McKibben calls, “a behind-the-scenes tour of the next wave of activism, organizing, inspiration, and change.”
