Last week, I mentioned that we've started a wiki to give nonprofits a brief introduction to the concepts and tools of Web 2.0 and to provide them with specific examples of how other nonprofits are using these tools to engage in their basic work activities. We're trying to build a library of resources for everyone, so what we're looking for are posts that:
- Provide a simple explanation, tutorial, how-to, tip etc. on using a Web 2.0 tool. Tools include blogs, wikis, RSS, social networking sites, YouTube, etc. Try to make things as "non-techie" as possible. We're looking for "Web 2.0 for Dummies" here.
- Demonstrate how a nonprofit is using a Web 2.0 tool to accomplish a particular task. Tasks can include marketing, fundraising, advocacy, staff development, etc. Any good concrete examples or case studies that can help nonprofits get a picture of how Web 2.0 stuff can work for them is perfect. If possible, examples of how smaller "mom and pop" nonprofits are doing it would be really great.
That's it. Looking forward to seeing what we come up with.
