What makes something NetSquared?

NetSquared's picture

So, we have these case studies up. And the volunteers are adding to them all the time. But we haven't really talked about what the selection process is. What makes a Net2 project?

Let me tell you what I think we know about Net2 projects:

  • they are working to advance social change;
  • they use the Internet;
  • the tools are social in nature;
  • there is something about them that makes them interesting.


Right, so it's that last bullet point that's tough. One of those "I know it when I see it" things. What makes something interesting?

What do you think? What makes a project Net2? Feel free to drop a comment here or write a post on your blog -- just add the technorati tag why+net2 so we'll find it.
