Our next Net Tuesday gathering will be for an “Extreme Makeover: Web Strategy Edition”. We’ll meet at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, March 3 at Buffalo Billiards at 118 Chestnut Street.
Learn how Web 2.0 strategies can be used for nonprofit and social change causes by participating in an interactive “extreme makeover” session. This format provides a chance for our diverse group of activists and techies to focus our attention on a particular cause. We will NOT be creating or directly affecting any website; we WILL be thinking and strategizing together about how Web 2.0 tools and principles can be used most effectively to help an actual client achieve their goals.
Who should attend?
- Nonprofits and activists who have used the social web: Come share your insights about what has and hasn’t worked for you in the past, and learn about considerations for more effectively using these tools in the future.
- Nonprofits and activists who have NOT used the social web: Come share your perspectives, and learn how to think about applying these tools to your own situations.
- Techies who work with the social web: Come share your technical experience, and learn more about the perspectives and expectations of nonprofit and social change activists who want to use these tools.
Our makeover client will be Carl Ewald, who runs TerraMar Adventures. Carl wants to use social web tools to engage people in TerraMar’s increasing community service and environmental protection efforts.
RSVP via our Meetup page is appreciated, but not required. Feel free to just show up, and bring your friends (and your thinking caps)!
So, come participate in a shared endeavor to strategize about the most effective ways to apply Web 2.0 tools in a real situation, and perhaps, ultimately, to help out our natural environment as well.
Hope to see you there!
