Tuesday, September 11th will mark what I hope is the beginning of a new collaborative blog series, Net2ThinkTank.

Each month I'll post a question related to using the social web for social change and ask you to answer it with a post on your blog. I'll do a round up on the Net2 blog pointing to your posts--so it means lots of link love for you!

My hope is that your collective wisdom will spark new ideas for how the social web can be used for social change, as well as produce solutions to challenges that web-based changemakers face.

Here is this month's question:

The Overbrook Foundation recently published, "Web 2.0 Assessment of The Overbrook Foundation's Human Rights Grantees" by Allison Fine, author of Momentum: Igniting Social Change in the Connected Age. The results of the study was that most of the organizations the Overbrook Foundation funded were struggling to incorporate the social web into their work.

The question is:

What is needed to facilitate more nonprofits' adoption of the social web?

Please tag your post, "net2thinktank" and send the link to your post to me at bbravo@techsoup.org by Monday, September 10th at 5 PM EST. I will post a roundup on Tuesday, September 11th.

If you don't have a blog, but would like to contribute to Net2ThinkTank, write a post here, on the Net2 Community Blog. Any registered user can post on it. Here's how. Just tag it "net2thinktank."

If you think your blog readers would be interested in submitting posts, please spread the word!
