Join the Social Web Carnival at the December Net Tuesday!

Come join us for a Social Web Carnival on December 2!

How do these social web tools relate to social change?

Come to participate in a highly interactive and dynamic event to address this question. We’ll also generate ideas for future Net Tuesday gatherings. And we’ll think of ways for those of us in the Philly area who resonate with these ideas to find, support and inspire one another.

  • Are you experienced in using these tools? Great. Bring your perspective and examples. 
  • Are you inexperienced with these tools, but curious? Great. Bring your perspective, questions and ambitions. 
  • Are you a non-profit or social change activist? Find out how some of these tools might help you realize your mission. 
  • Are you a techie? Discover how nonprofits, fellow techies and others think about using these tools to make a difference in the world. 
  • Are you a visionary or career changer? See if you can find some opportunities and gaps that need to be filled. 

Join us on Tuesday, December 2 from 6:30–8:30 PM at Independents Hall (the co-working space) at 32 Strawberry Street in Olde City. (Strawberry Street runs parallel to and between 2nd and 3rd Streets, and IndyHall is between Market and Chestnut.)

RSVPs via our Meetup Page are helpful, but not required.


Great meeting on September 2nd

We had a really fun and informative meeting on September 2, anchored by Rod Murray talking about podcasting and David Kessler talking about videoblogging.

Thanks to Anthony Farrior, who ustreamed the event, you can see videos here:

Dr. Rod Murray is an educational technology leader with 20 years of experience, mostly at Thomas Jefferson University where he teaches pharmacology to 2nd year medical students. He produces a podcast on e-learning technology, Rod’s Pulse Podcast, with over 70 episodes so far. Rod also does web technology consulting with his company, MCS Consulting.

David S Kessler is a fine artist and filmmaker who has been using videoblogging as a medium and a means of distribution for his own work. He is currently working on a body of video work that explores the people and places that David encounters under the El tracks of Kensington, Philadelphia, called Shadow World.  And more of David’s work can be found at Studioscopic.
