Net Tuesday Philly June Meeting

  • Jun 3, 2008 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is no longer available

Plans are coming together for a great meeting on June 3. Highlights include the following, with more detail below.


  • A report (with demonstrations) from Seth Horwitz and Ivan Boothe about some of the really cool stuff they saw at the annual NetSquared conference in San Jose.
  • A short presentation by Larry Miller of the I Do Foundation about their use of extensible meeting and process management.
  • A live update from the Philly WiFi forum happening simultaneously up at Temple. NOTE: The WiFi forum has been postponed to June 18, so there will be no update at tonight's Net Tuesday meeting.

More details:


  • Ivan Boothe and Seth Horwitz, co-organizers of Net Tuesday Philly, attended the third annual NetSquared conference in San Jose on May 27 and 28. A key feature of the conference was a showcase and competition among 21 finalists of the NetSquared Mashup Challenge. Innovative ideas and applications, combined with deep, authentic commitment to social change, produced some really interesting sites in various early stages of development. Seth and Ivan will showcase a few of these and highlight principles and practices that they believe will be useful and interesting to Net Tuesday folks.
  • Lawrence Miller of the I Do Foundation, will describe his website that helps engaged couples celebrate generously and start a lifetime habit of charitable giving with their weddings, and his use of extensible meeting and process management. He'll discuss a few replicable, extensible, and simple organization techniques that can be applied to your board meetings, your programming team, or even your unwieldy email threads to help the group stay on track without steamrolling over individual people.
  • Coincidentally, at the same time our Net Tuesday is meeting, there is a forum being held at Temple University on the future of WiFi in Philadelphia organized by the Media Mobilizing Project. Since this is a topic of interest to many Net Tuesday folks, we?re planning to have a live update of what is happening at that meeting. (BTW, is anyone else planning to attend that meeting?) NOTE: The WiFi forum has been postponed to June 18, so there will be no update at tonight's Net Tuesday meeting.

Plus, plenty of time for schmoozing, networking and getting to know one another.

The June Meeting is sponsored by WomenMatter.com - Engaging Women in the Political Process

Good ideas, good people, good energy. Hope to see you there.

    I was pleased to see a mix of return users (from the May meeting) and new faces; and both groups seemed to respond positively. It was also neat to see such a positive response to the "Pimp my Nonprofit" idea (of having a session where someone describes what their nonprofit is doing in this web2.0 space, and get feedback and advice from the group); and we can blend that into some future meetings.

    I enjoyed the presentations. Larry Miller from the I Do Foundation both described and demo'd tips on effective process/meeting/work managment - and used a cool USB "remote" that allowed him to move through an innovative HTML/Firefox presentation (a Power Point alternative) and allowed Seth to control his presentation too.

    Seth & Ivan brought back news of innovations they ran into at the Net Squared Conference In San Jose. Most interesting to me was metavid.ucsc.edu - which uses several data/meta-data innovations to provide a searchable archive of CSPAN clips - very cool.

    Also www.knowmore.org is providing a FireFox extension that allows them to "cast" their product ratings onto company websites and into Google Search results. the implications, both good and bad, are food for thought

    Look forward to next month

    Another interesting meeting. I started to think about how to use the ideas and open source scripts that Seth demonstrated. I need to research about them first. The greenmaps was really cool.

    Both subjects covered were very different, and both interesting. I also appreciated that future meetings were presented as open to different formats.

    I was able to network with professionals in the non profit sector who utilize various software programs and social networking sites to connect with their constituents and promote their non profit's misson.
