I was very honoured to be asked to present a talk tonight for the sixth Refresh Event.
The slides are available as a PDF for download (20.6MB), or you can view them in slideshare format below – note that slideshare changed the font used on the slides, which messes up the layout slightly. For best experience, download the PDF.
The primary project I’m working on at SiG@MaRS over the next few months is a week-long event in Toronto in early June. Together with some amazingpartners, we’ll be bringing together the web/tech/agency/communication community with people working to create social change.
The goal of the week is to create opportunities for people in these two different groups to learn and work together. We’ve got some crazy ideas brewing, and plan on having a lot of fun.
We’ve temporarily called the week “Social Tech for Social Change”, but we all feel that the name is too cumbersome. Rather than deciding what to call this thing in a vacuum, I figured we’d put it out to the intended audience to see which name resonates best with you.
Please have a look at the names below – note these aren’t logos, I’ve just made the names pretty ’cause that’s the way I roll. At the bottom of the post is a poll. You can make multiple selections. Go! Go! Go!
