To keep from getting into trouble with the cops we've had to find ourselves a hobby.
After examining our options (rollerblading! stamp collecting! cricket!) we decided that our new hobby should be hosting unconferences, because what's more fun than gathering 75 of our best friends together to chat about how we can use this new-fangled internet thing to do good in the world?
The April 3 2012 Net Tuesday Vancouver was a "speed date" (think Pecha Kucha or Ignite format) which crowd-sourced practical tools and tips that can help nonprofits GET THINGS DONE. The event was organized by Darian Kovacs and the rest of the organizing team.
Stalwart social media volunteer Kelvin (KC) Claveria documented the event on Twitter using our #ntvan hashtag. I organized and bundled up the tweets using Storify. Enjoy.
NetSquared Camp is a daylong unconference put on by the friendly folks that host the monthly Net Tuesday meetups in Vancouver. Net Tuesday brings together social media users and web innovators with social change makers and nonprofits to swap stories, mix ideas, and build new relationships. The aim is to empower non-profits with emerging tools, trends, and best-practices, allowing them to fulfill their mission statements in new and innovative ways.
Net Tuesday Vancouver is excited to announce NetSquared Camp 2012, an intimate gathering of Vancouver’s online campaigners. This unconference will be a chance for our community to gather and share our hard-won best practices, war stories, and victories!
The event will be held at The Hive on Saturday, April 28 and admission is $20.
Net Tuesday is proud to have Communicopia's Jason Mogus presenting at our February 7 meetup. NOTE: We expect this event to be very popular, so registration is capped. Please RSVP to confirm your attendance.
Have you recently “checked-in” or fought for “mayorship” at your favourite restaurant or retail location? With Facebook recently launching its Facebook Places and Foursquare partnering with (RED), location-based services are definitely one of the trending topics in social media right now.
The topic for March is location-based services and how organizations can leverage the technology for social-change. We’re still in the process of curating speakers, so if you know anyone who is knowledgeable about these topics, please let us know at email@example.com
