Net2Chi & NTEN - Know the Difference!

Net2Chi & NTEN - Know the Difference!
As the organizer for Net2Chi (aka “Chicago Net Tuesday” or “Chicago Netsquared”), I often hear about other organizations that are doing similar work….and the conversation always turns to the obvious question: “Why don’t you work with NTEN?” This is a very ironic question, because both organizations are branches of a larger non-profit….and both branches are doing some...

Chicago Net Tuesday 101
It would be easy to think of Chicago solely as a tech/startup city, or even that all tech and social good means is that more non-profits should use software…but you would be wrong – dead wrong.

Avoiding Social Media Mission Creep
(The following is a slight rewrite of a post from another, now defunct blog from long ago. However, many of the sentiments and ideas still fit.) Currently, I’m working on a presentation entitled Sherlock Holmes & the Social Media Mystery, presented via Dabble, and flashed back to an incident at an earlier Net Tuesday meeting.... Read more »
