OneWebDay is a day when users of the World Wide Web are encouraged to show how the Internet affects their lives. It is held on September 22. The purpose of the event is to globally celebrate online life. The goal of celebrating OneWebDay each year is to create and make visible a global constituency that cares about the future of the Internet.


The first ever OneWebDay was held on September 22, 2006. The idea was created by Susan P. Crawford, who set up the web site, traveled to different cities to encourage people to celebrate OneWebDay, and persuaded the initial group of evangelists to celebrate the day. David Weinberger, Mary Hodder, and David Isenberg (all OneWebDay Board members) were heavily involved in brainstorming about OneWebDay in 2005-06.

The first OneWebDay's anchor celebration in 2006 featured Craig Newmark, Scott Heiferman, and Drew Schutte as speakers in New York City's Battery Park.

In 2008 OneWebDay was celebrated at more than 30 international events.[1] In Washington Square Park NYC speakers included Crawford, John Perry Barlow, Jonathan Zittrain, Craig Newmark, and Lawrence Lessig.[2]

In May 2009, after founder Susan Crawford had joined the Obama administration, Mitch Kapor took over chairmanship of OneWebDay. It was also announced that a major funding grant had been granted by the Ford Foundation.[3]
