Happy One Web Day! I <3 web wave rolling.

September 22, 2009 § 5 Comments

I woke up this morning to a feed reader full of I <3 the web photos from India. Got to the office: a bunch more from Europe. And a video from Toronto. Today is OneWebDay. And, slowly, a wave of celebration for the web is rolling around the world.

Why take the time to say ‘I love the web’? My reason: I believe it is worth stopping to remember that the web is not only a huge source of creativity, innovation and wonder, but it’s also something all of us help create everyday. The web may feel like oxygen, just there all the time. But it is oxygen that we all help to make. OneWebDay is about taking a moment once a year celebrate the (better and open) web we’re all creating.

It’ll be interesting to see if the I <3 the web poster wave builds. You can join in by posting a photo or changing your twitter, identi.ca or facebook icon. In the meantime, I want call out a few of the many awesome contributions so far …
