Ken Livingston, the first elected Mayor of London and architect of the successful downtown congestion pricing project profiled in Bill Eggers’ “If We Can Put a Man on the Moon,” has launched a NationBuilder-powered digital platform centered around his campaign volunteers. Livingstone is Labour’s candidate to unseat the Convervatives’ Boris Johnson in 2012.

YourKen.org will give thousands of volunteers the chance to actively participate in the most cutting edge and dynamic campaign London has ever seen,” Livingston said of the site.

Labour supporters on Twitter welcomed the site as “natty,” “slick,” “brilliant,” and “bloody great.”

Livingstone’s “YourKen” was designed by Ben Soffa of the UK firm Organic Campaigns.

I am writing to ask you to join Adriel Nation, my network for promoting emerging technologies for better government, democracy and self-governance and for sharing opportunities to help charities around the world. All  of my blogging is now on this new platform, powered by NationBuilder.

Adriel Nation has two key focuses: promoting emerging technologies for improving democratic and self governance (Gov 2.0 RadioNationBuildercivic tech events and more); and using social networks to create awareness of and raise funds for organizations doing social good (XBAR Gives and more).

If you join, you will also have the opportunity to suggest organizations we should be supporting and to make other suggestions for the focus of Adriel Nation.

Thank you!
