Our big question for Chicago: How do we build synergies across events, projects/organizations and neighborhoods? How will we move the culture towards openness and collaboration? That's our first Chicago Drumbeat Session in a nutshell! We'll set the stage with an overview of the Mozilla Drumbeat Initiative then we'll dig into deeper questions and strategies for collaboration and field-building as we get ready for the
Sept 12: Net Squared Chicago COUNTS camp (spearheaded by our own Heidi Massey). We're inspired by the Drumbeat focus on collaboration and the open web, and #net2chi has always been about a new way of working together. Organizers: Kara Carrell is a Board Member for
ProjectVIDA/ProjectLIFE, and as a Social Media Enthusiast, she moderates the
501 Tech Club of Chicago. Dave Chakrabarti is founding a startup! Nonprofitable.org builds
Drupal / CiviCRM solutions for nonprofits. Prior to this, Dave built Drupal-based websites as a project manager for the Chicago Technology Cooperative and was an internet marketing consultant.
