Hi all,

As much as any group, the Internet Society (ISOC) co-ords the web,
and this does seem a good idea. One day to celebrate the Internet.

The first annual OneWebDay will be celebrated on September 22, 2006.

The purpose of OneWebDay (see http://onewebday.org) is to celebrate the 
human collaboration and connection the Internet makes possible.

How you celebrate is up to you .. the idea is to make the positive 
aspects of the Internet more visible.  If you wish to take part, you 
could, for example, have a teaching session in your town for people to 
learn how to edit a wiki or post a photo online.  You could make it easy 
for people to post tribute pages in honor of their friends, or sponsor 
a "grandparents and grandchildren online" session in the town hall. 

There's a OneWebDay wiki for collaborating on projects -- it's here:
http://www.onewebday.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page, and a web form for
registering projects if you don't want to edit the wiki

OneWebDay is one day a year when we all - everyone around the physical 
globe - can celebrate the Web and what it means to us as individuals, 
organizations, and communities.

Cheers all,
