NYC Tech4Good (a NetSquared group)

We are new media and/or advocacy professionals who want to share knowledge for some better purpose.

We meet the 2nd Wednesday each month. Meetings are casual. When we can, we have a speaker share with us their area of expertise, otherwise we just socialize.

Some previous topics: * Using e-mail lists in advocacy * Working with bloggers in advocacy * Mobile advocacy * Using online video in advocacy * Roundtable: Why not apply open source to nonprofit campaigns? * Using social networking tools in nonprofit campaigns
