Next stop on my March Madness World Tour: Seattle and N-TEN’s 2006 National Technology Conference.
During the same time slot, we are up against a “speed geek” session on Online Advocacy Tools and it appears that the program (at least online) does not list the people behind each session, so please spread the word!
Here’s a rough description:
Blogging, Tagging, Flickring for the Cause: New Tools and New Strategies
If words like â€œblogger,â€ â€œpodcaster,â€ â€œaggregator,â€ â€œtags,â€ or â€œflickrâ€ mean nothing to you â€“ or, even worse, if they have become trendy catch phrases without meaning â€“ you are missing out on the opportunity of a generation. At 15 years old, the Web has grown up and become a rich environment of empowered individuals and free-flowing information. New tools that allow individualization and build communities will be critical for successful organizations in the years to come.
This workshop will focus on the big-picture strategies that take advantage of modern Internet tools, but will also give you a chance to put ideas into practice by documenting the NTC as it happens.
Top Three Takeaways for Session:
1. Discover easy-to-use and affordable tools for online interaction and dynamic publishing, and see how they are being used to promote good causes.
2. Learn about the strategies that will make these tools work successfully for your organization or issue.
3. An opportunity to see these tools in action, and start using them today.
