As a recap, the topic for the Pimp My Non Profit panel is:
Non profit groups struggle with funding and public support issues on a
daily basis. Yet many have overcome the odds and made a splash online
and offline by using the latest Web technologies — for pennies on the
dollar. This discussion will center around the stories, strategies,
triumphs and challenges of innovative non profits with a passion for
change and the cajones to rock it out online.
I am the official "cat herder" as the moderator. The panelists planned are (note – Seth was unavailable due to travel so Michaela is joining us – Thanks Michaela!):
Beth Kanter, bethkanter.org
Rachel Weidinger, Strategy for Social Entrepreneurs and on Netsquared here.
Michaela Hackner, Girls with Macs and World Learning.
Erin Denny, Senior Product Manager, YouthNoise Initiatives
So a couple shout outs. First – thanks to Netsquared, Britt, Marnie, Beth, Katie, Jason. Beth also introduced me to Michaela who I am really looking forward to meeting in person soon. A special THANK YOU to Katie as she is the one who came up with the "Pimp My Non Profit" theme and panel description.
OK, now before Britt says anything I need to go and actually post to the Netsquared blog for a change!
The photo? Just a good visual to go with the LONG WAIT between the panel picker votes closing and the announcements. Thanks for the hard work Hugh! I can’t imagine SXSW panel selection is easy!
