By creating blogs and participating in the onling social networking community of folks who are trying to make a difference in the world, does it make a difference? Good question. I think I’ll ponder and post an answer. Care to join the community?

I have been brewing the idea for this blog for some months now, and the vision is finally becoming clear to me.
There is a burgeoning community of bloggers and nonprofit technology consultants who are creating tools to help build social change movements. Every day there are new resources on the Internet. I am most interested in the tools that leverage information as a catalyst for progress and philanthropy.
In these postings I will share my experience, opinions, and questions about emerging information technology, and what I learn from others in the nonprofit industry. I will write about movements and issues that are near and dear to me, and how my colleagues and I are using information technology to raise awareness and promote philanthropy to support those causes.
I have been researching and dabbling from the sidelines, meeting virtually and in person people whose work I admire. I’ve dipped my toes in, and now I’m taking the plunge with this blog.
