The Netherlands is ranked third in the world when it comes to broadband access per capita. Mobile internet is available in nearly every corner of the country. The penetration of social media is huge. For example, 60% of the Dutch population is a member of Hyves, the biggest social network in The Netherlands. The web is very dominant in The Netherlands. Politicians know this. Nearly the whole parliament is active on Twitter. Something really exciting is starting to show in The Netherlands. The traditional gap between politicians and people is getting smaller. How can we get beyond Twitter? In this presentation, Ruben will explain how we can help politicians to make this gap even smaller. He will explain how he helped transforming the Labour website into an awesome personal blog. He will explore what political parties can learn from websites like Good.is on how they use info graphics to tell their story. Politics don't have to be dull and impersonal. Don't be scared, this presentation won't be either.
