Where can you find inspiration for online advocacy, guidance for online faclitation, and gossip about online politics? On Tuesday May 30th and Wednesday May 31st, NetSquared is hosting a remote conference featuring live chats and Q&A sessions with leaders from across the nonprofit web.
The remote conference is happening at the same time as a two-day confab in San Jose. After eight months of work on the NetSquared project, I’m heartbroken that I won’t be there in person (something about not travelling in the ninth month of pregnancy, mutter mutter grumble) — and absolutely determined that the online event will be so fabulous that when my colleagues return from San Jose, they’re going to be jealous that I was the one who got to hang out in the chat room.
And what better way to get over that morning-after-the-Memorial-Day-before feeling than to spend the day chatting with leaders in nonprofit technology — leaders like:
- Judith Feder on “Health care and web 2.0 patient communities”
- Rolf Kleef of Greenpeace
- Micki Krimmel of Participant Productions on “Media that Mobilizes: An Inconvenient Truth, ClimateCrisis and more tales from Participate.net”
- Beth Kanter on “Tagging in the Nonprofit World”
- Robyn Deupree of Bloglines Lisa Stone of BlogHer
- Alexandra Samuel of Social Signal on “Building Online Community: Behind the Scenes at NetSquared”
- Mike Linksvayer of Creative Commons on “Leveraging Technology for Free Culture and Your Nonprofit’s Mission”
- Enoch Choi of Palo Alto Medical Foundation on “Tech Tools in Medicine: Personal Health Records, Mobile Devices, Blogging,Podcasting, Health Search & Tagging @ Google Co-op”
- Boris Mann from Bryght on “Open Source and your non-profit”
- Scott Heiferman from Meetup.com
- Nancy White of Full Circle on “Online Facilitation Open Discussion”
- Edward Vielmetti from the University of Michigan School of Information on “Superpatron: viewing libraries from a patron’s point of view”
