Plugging In to Advocacy and Life
Well, I have been quite "unplugged" in recent weeks due to a crazy travel and work schedule. Thank goodness I had so many electronic gadgets to keep me focused and organized!
I know I haven't shared lately, but no worries. Here are a couple great pieces for the tech-savvy to enjoy:
I wrote a piece for the American Society of Association Executives (yes, the association of associations) on using social networks in advocacy campaigns. While the five tips outlined are oriented toward government relations and grassroots, they can definitely be useful for anyone hoping to get started in this brave new world.
For anyone who doesn't get Parade Magazine in your Sunday paper (or who doesn't read it), you might want to check out the online version. The lead story this last week was how technology can help you Get Connected! (hmmm, or maybe "Plugged In?). The main point of the piece was that people use technology to be active and involved in politics, meet people across the planet and organize / focus their lives.
