Ideas and thoughts about Social Source.
The NetSquared team is working on viral videos to catalyze involvement and support. Is a video really viral if it doesn't involve a cut furry animal or stupid people injuring themselves?Anyway,
Thanks for the shout out,David!
Hi David,I saw that you were writing about the Netsquared Mashup challenge and I wanted to share a little bit about our Mashup Challenge entry: Assetmap.org/uganda. You can read more at http://www.assetmap.org/ugandaThe question behind the project is this: with peace on the horizon after 20 years of war in northern Uganda, and the big NGOs soon heading off to other war zones, who is going to support community organizations and northern Ugandan civil society as it transitions to peace time?By mapping information about ongoing community-led philanthropic partnerships in northern Uganda, assetmap.org/uganda helps American citizens aggregate their resources to support post-conflict transformation.We hope to facilitate collaboration among American donors and volunteers by providing a digital tool that:•maps project locations so you know who's working where•tags information about the specific issues projects and organizations seek to address•links tagged and mapped projects to the facebook and LinkedIn profiles of participating donors or volunteersIf you're interested in supporting us, please visit and vote for us here:http://www.netsquared.org/2008/conference/projects/assetmap-org-ugandaThanks!Nathaniel WhittemoreDirector, Northwestern University Center for Global Engagementwww.mycge.orgglobalengagement at gmail
