Jumo - new social network

Just when I begin to feel like I've got a handle on social networking I read that one of the founders of Facebook is developing Jumo, to "Bring together everyday individuals and organizations to speed the pace of global change. We connect people to the issues, organizations, and individuals relevant to them to foster lasting relationships and meaningful action." I'm wondering how it will fill a niche that's different from Ashoka/Changemakers, or Network for Good, and who knows what other things that are out there that I haven't seen yet! Read more about Jumo here.

Webinar Archive

Back in January I did a webinar, my first experience! I've finally gotten ahold of the link to that webinar and can share it with everyone. It's a presentation on HIPPY 101 - ie. all the basics of the HIPPY model. Please listen if you're interested! Here is the link to that archive. In the Participant Login section, put in your name and hit the Enter button. If you have not used Wimba before may want to run the Wizard to make sure your computer is set up properly to view/listen the session. One note:  There is a period of about one minute silence around the 45 second mark (probably due to computer glitch).

Now that I've had the first under my belt and understand the technology better I have a lot of ideas on how to make it interactive and more interesting. I'm looking forward to trying it again!
