My name is Britt Bravo and I’m Net2’s Community Builder. I’m the person putting together the Participate page on the site, http://www.netsquared.org/participate, and the one who can give you info. on all kinds of cool ways to get involved in NetSquared.
Have you check out the NetSquared in Action page lately? http://www.netsquared.org/casestudy Well, if you haven’t, give it a browse ‘cause right now we have 37 case studies up profiling how nonprofits are using technology like wikis, podcasts, blogs and RSS feeds to create social change.
One of my favorites is UNICEF’s podcasts, http://www.netsquared.org/unicef-podcast, (yes I am the person who wrote the case study). I listen to them on my commute into SF all the time. The podcasts are such a great way to literally give a voice to the children being served by UNICEF’s work and to empower the young people who sometimes do the reporting. I love them because they are totally inspiring and they make donating to UNICEF so appealing (I know where I’ll be getting my holiday cards this year).
If you are reading this entry, you’re probably interested in how nonprofits can use participation–based technology for social change and I’ll bet you even know of an organization that is using these tools.
If you do, send us the info! We want to create 10,000 case studies of how nonprofits are successfully remixing the web for social change so that we can inspire other nonprofits to use all this fun new technology to further their missions. We have 37 organizations documented and only have 9,963 more to go. Wahoo!
If you’re interested in creating a case study just register on the site (if you haven’t already), log in, go to our Put Your Voice In the Mix page, http://www.netsquared.org/participate/put-your-voice-in-the-mix, click on “submit case study” and fill out the form. If you have any trouble with the form or have any suggestions for the Participate page, just post a comment here or email me, bbravo(AT)techsoup.org
