Can the Third Sector use Second Life and Other Social Media?

A presentation I gave recently for a British charity. Ren Reynolds (no relation) suggested an alternative title for it, “Third Sector in Third Spaces”. That’s much better and I’d use something that next time. | View I’ve trimmed it down to an hour, but included most of the Q&A/discussion at the end, which included: How […]

Warwick University – What’s IT All About?

I presented at a careers fair at Warwick University yesterday. | View I actually gave the presentation twice, once in the morning and once in the afternoon.

I’m glad I added the audio track last night. In other, related, news: SlideShare is one year old today. Happy birthday, (and thank you), SlideShare.

Mine is the opening presentation for the event, and I’m intentionally not talking about the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in Second Life (because they’ll be on after me) and there are lots of other things I’m […]
