Agenda: Spotlighting tools and causes with JD Lasica of SocialBrite (http://www.socialbrite.org/)
JD Lasica (http://www.jdlasica.com/aboutjd.html) will be kicking things off by showing off some of the things he's doing at Socialbrite, including the Sharing Center and community widgets. For the second half of the evening we'd like to showcase some other community-focused organizations with a strong social media component, most likely a 5-minute talk followed by 5 to 10 minutes of questions from the audience.
Your organization. If you have a community-spirited effort that involves social media or uses social tools for social change, drop JD a note to discuss: [masked]
• Public Media Collaborative (http://publicmediacollaborative.pbworks.com/Mission-and-goals), which brings together bloggers, journalists, technologists, media & environmental justice folks, community organizers and activists from around the Bay area to explore and discuss social justice and emerging technology issues in a way that links theory and practice.
• The Extraordinaries (http://www.theextraordinaries.org/), a way to volunteer for worthy efforts by using your mobile phone during your free time.
Or, if you have a suggestion about showcasing a group or cause that you're not leading but think they deserve a Net Tuesday appearance, let us know that, too.
Looking forward to connecting!
