Community blogging presentation

On Friday, Brian and I did a presentation at the annual RTPnet conference on Blogging and Podcasting. The conference brings together nonprofits and community technology advocates from around North Carolina. Brian’s got the PDF of our presentation up on his blog. All I want to add are these links that I suggest for more information:

Both of us had done this before, but this is the first time we presented together. I think it went pretty well. Folks were very interested and I think everyone came away with some new ideas for how they can advance their mission with online tools.

Here’s the descriptionof the session I wrote:

Ruby and Brian are nonprofit staff members, activists, and geeks. In this session they will explain how blogs, podcasting, and other grassroots tools can help you find new supporters, mobilize old ones, share news and information, tell your stories, amplify unheard voices, communicate clearly, harness volunteer energy, and build a movement around your cause – all at little or no cost.

And here’s what it said in the program:

Ruby and Brian are nonprofit staff members, activists, and geeks. They will explain how blogs, podcasting, and other grassroots tools can help you find new supporters, mobilize old ones. These unconventional tools allow you to share news and information, amplify unheard voices to tell your stories and build a movement around your cause – all at little or no cost.

I don’t mind a little editing, but “unconventional?” Not really.
