| THURSDAY, JULY 23, 2009

SOCIAL ACTIONS  The Future of Social Actions, Part II: Projects in the Pipeline
| WEDNESDAY, JULY 8, 2009
One of the biggest embarrassments for me is that the footer of the main Social Actions website, My Social Actions, and search.socialactions.com has statistics that are from December 2008. Over the next several weeks, I will be thinking out loud about the Future of Social Actions. Our initiative is approaching its two year anniversary at the end of August, and would benefit from some community participation in creating a long-term plan going forward.
HAVE FUN - DO GOOD  Women's Earth Alliance: Co-Directors Melinda Kramer and Amira Diamond
| TUESDAY, MAY 4, 2010
One of the women that stands out is actually someone who participated in our 2008 training, which took place in Kenya. "To us, it's really about collaboration. It simply doesn't work to stay in your silo, and to grab hold of your mission statement and work alone.

MUSEUM 2.0  1stfans: An Audience-Specific Membership Program at the Brooklyn Museum
| THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2009
We announced 1stfans on December 5, 2008, and since then have had 272 1stfans from 15 states and 9 countries on 4 continents. The conventional wisdom on museum memberships is that they are "one size fits many" programs whose primary benefits are free entrance to the museum and insider access to exhibition openings.

HAVE FUN - DO GOOD  Must Hear Speech from Barack Obama and the Power of Podcasting
| SATURDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2005
In doing a little research for this post, I came across the East Side Bloggers 2008 , a blog by 10th graders at East Side Community High School. I love listening to Barack Obama's podcasts because he gives me hope that there is at least one person in the US government who is reasonable, sane, intelligent and truly cares about people as humans, not just as voters who can keep him in or out of office.

For example, we put together the 2008 Seva Challenge. "We want to support anyone who is interested in engagement, but we want to help them do it in a way that is healthy for them, creates community, and creates longevity, so that everyone wins, and no one gets burnt out or sick. That is not what service should be about. It should be about joy, on every level." --Seane Corn, co-Founder, Off the Mat, Into the World.
HAVE FUN - DO GOOD  All for Green, and Green for All: An Interview with Van Jones

And the Democrats want to be the fiscal conservatives in 2008 who want to run against Bush's mega deficit. When I went to see Van Jones speak for the first time at the Green Festival in November 2002 about, "Green Jobs, Not Packed Jails," people in the States were just starting to lift their heads up from a year of fear and despair after September 11th. Hearing Van speak was probably one of the first moments I felt hope again for our future, and energized to make the world a better place.
