Web 2.0 to “Change the World”

October 27, 2010

I found this interesting piece about non-profit organizations using Web 2.0 to help your cause or mission within your organization. I found it to be a very interesting read, being that many libraries are non-profit, and always trying to think of new ways to “get out there”. Some of the things from this list that stood out to me, was the RSS feed, because I know that SJSU SLIS uses an RSS feed for a lot of their news, and doing something as little as leaving a comment trail on the internet.

    This is an interesting list to look through in considering Web 2.0 tools. Back in 2000, I worked for a group (itself a nonprofit) that led training workshops on how to use the Web to advance nonprofit missions. In my position, I spent a lot of time with small nonprofits who had few resources but knew they needed to get online and find a way to connect with their constituents. The funny thing is, the 10 tips on this list are close to identical to what we taught back then, at least in concept, though of course the manifestations looks a little different in the Web 2.0 world. I think it’s a good thing that the goals have remained the same, it gives me hope that nonprofit groups (including many libraries) who have few resources at hand can take advantage of web 2.0 tools to continue to stay relevant to their patrons at a very low cost.
