Tonight we’re having another Houston NetSquared NetTuesday Meetup at the Stag’s Head Pub (2128 Portsmouth St.). It’s going to be a casual affair – no speaker, no agenda, NO RULES!! Extreme Houston NetSquared Meetup!!
Seriously though, this meeting will focus on the Net2 conversation that we’re trying to promote between non profit advocates and technology developers.
Talk is cheap – no matter how well-intentioned or ‘feel goody’ it is at the time. That’s where Net2’s Next Actions ideas and Non Profit WishLists come into play — our goal tonight is to come out with actionable tasks and projects for ways we can use the technology we know and love to change lives.
How can we increase awareness of the benefits of online technologies to non profit groups in our area? What are things that we as geeks can be working on to maintain a instill a sense of community and partnership in our area? What are our common goals? Hope to see you there…
As a sidenote, it’s really cool to see the NetSquared gang getting some press coverage – check out this great article by MSNBC’s ‘Practical Futurist’ on the Net2 Conference in San Jose a couple of weeks ago.
On the growth of citizen journalism via social Web tools, Ethan Zuckerman says:
“What we try to do isn’t to speak, but to point. It’s getting easier and easier to let people speak for themselves.”
