This is all set to happen at this week's New Organizing Institute (NOI)'s RootsCamp National 2012 unconference (Nov 30th and Dec 1st, here in D.C.) -- a mecca of sorts for the organizer faithful.

Dear Nonprofits, Be Fearless


Michael Smith, the Director of the White House''s Social Innovation Fund , spoke to the Unconference after lunch. This is our final installment of Nonprofit 2.0 keynotes. In the last couple of weeks, we were able to recap Majora Carter and Craig Newmark. And we finally have the workshop session notes up for you to check out. His topic? Be Fearless. He encouraged every nonprofit and strategist to embrace being fearless. Michael stressed the need for social change in our country.

Dang, seems to be a lot to fear.


Although at this rate, maybe we should have an unconference instead, and really talk about this properly. Check out the comments on my post about Five Fears Associations Have about Social Media. Thank to all for commenting, and please, keep 'em coming and register for the webinar (go on, it's free)! Remember, I'll pick my top five to discuss. No, not afraid of anything. Except maybe those nasty camel crickets that jump really high. Oh, and birds. Don't like birds. : ).


Zen and the Art of Nonprofit Technology

The unconference/camp model of learning about technology issues is really great, but falls a little short when dealing with a specific tool, and an audience that is mostly unfamiliar with it. at 5:48 pm Michelle, I had an opportunity to “force&# the unconference/camp model of learning, as you described it, on participants at the AIRS (www.airs.org) conference in Houston ( [link] ).

Why the web makes us feel like we’ve met in a past life

John Haydon

Conferences and unconferences. You’ve heard of meetups and tweetups. Podcamps and WordCamps. And if you’ve followed these types of events over the past couple of years, you’ve probably noticed that they’re becoming more and more frequent. The main reason for this phenomena is that the web is getting better at helping us to do two things: Matching up our interests with groups, tags and categories. Finding each other with geolocation. Flocking together.
