Non-profits and activists around Philadelphia are increasingly using the web and social software to foster social change. Join Philly NetSquared as we bring together web innovators and social changemakers to socialize, strategize, learn from and inspire one another. For more info, including past Net Tuesday presentations, check out our site at http://phillynetsquared.org.
NetSquared is a national organization (http://www.netsquared.org/) with chapters in many cities. Net Tuesdays are independent gatherings encouraged by NetSquared.
Philly NetSquared holds Net Tuesdays the first week of each month.
Be a Net Tuesday presenter! We're always looking for people to share their stories about using technology for social change, promote your organization, talk about the innovative work you're doing, and inspire others to follow your lead!
We encourage RSVPs, but feel free to simply show up (and bring friends)! Questions, please contact the organizers.
