Be the Media

I'm SUPER excited to be a part of this exciting project from NTEN and Beth Kanter called Be the Media. The project - as the name suggests - is encouraging nonprofits and folks with important stories to tell to STOP waiting for the traditional gatekeepers (multi-national media conglomerates) to tell our stories and instead to START distributing our own news!

The goal of the project is two-fold:

1. To develop an online social media training curriculum chock full o' resources to help nonprofits to understand and use social media.

2. To do the project online in a collaborative way to both create a "community of practice" and use the tools that are being discussed.

I hope you'll follow this project as it evolves. In fact I hope you'll add your 2 cents and get involved.
