An open letter to 2010 Web of Change attendees:

Thank you for joining us in September at the 10th Web of Change. We deeply value the time and investment you made to attend. As anchors of the conference -- the people who produced it -- we want to share with you our reflections about this unique year, and get your thoughts on where we are going from here.

At the conference, and afterward on the listserv, we’ve talked a lot about innovation, taking risks and challenging each other and our sector to be better. In that same spirit, WOC 2010 was very much an innovation, and we get that not all of it worked as we had anticipated. This is what we want to explore with you.

WOC 10:10 is a wrap, but the conversations continue

Web of Change 10:10 is a wrap, but the conversations and connections have only just begun.

Last week, a group of 105 top-notch leaders converged to learn, discuss and inquire into the roots of social change and technology and what it means to be leaders in this field.  Over 5 days, the group shared stories, best practices and their passions and commitment to envision and create a better world.  And while the gathering has ended, the conversations and connections we forged aim to inspire future collaborations. 

In the next few months, attendees will be sharing their thoughts and reflections on the blog. In the meantime, check out immediate reactions on the #webofchange twitter feed.

Growing the movement

As we enjoy the last week of "official" summer, the warm weather continues to hold on the west coast, which bodes well for enjoying long lunches on the ocean-side deck at Web of Change in a month.

You may have heard some cool buzz about WOC this year. Like the distributed leadership model with 8 new people co-managing as anchors. Or how they and our 2010 hosts are producing "thought bombs" to share their big questions for the year. Or maybe that we have so much momentum, 10 years on, that we sold out in July (though the wait list is still open!).

Another Web of Change 10:10 Host Announced

Director of Business Development, Care2

Idea: Race and Ethnicity Matter Online
It's no secret that we are undergoing a huge demographic shift in the United States.  The Census Bureau estimates that by 2042 (some have revised the estimate to 2050), we will be a "majority-minority" nation.  In fact, in four states - California, New Mexico, Texas and Hawaii - people of color already comprise a majority of the population. 

  • What does this mean for us as online community organizers, fundraisers and public policy advocates?
  • How will and should our outreach efforts be shaped by the nation’s changing demographics?
  • How do we make an economic as well as ethical case for diversity?
  • What strategies and tactics can we employ to create more inclusive communities online so that we can realize the "democratizing power" of the Internet?
