Can a wiki be an example of paying it forward? Gotta love Michelle Martin from the Bamboo Project Blog for this. Last week she wrote about her search for a good archive of Web2.0 how-tos for nonprofits: I couldn't find a good "Nonprofit Web 2.0 for Dummies," that boiled down the essence of this stuff into pieces a "regular" person could understand.
So, she went out and created the Web2.0 and Nonprofits Best Practices Wiki! (Password is "nptech")
Our goal with this is not to be the definitive resource for all things Web 2.0. There are plenty of sites that are doing this, like TechSoup. We're also not trying to get too detailed and technical. Instead, we're trying to create something that's easily digestible and understandable for most nonprofits and that organizes the information in terms that
they are most likely to understand.
She is inviting others to contribute links and resources and I know I certainly will. (I have a web2.0 beginner's tools guide that I created last summer -- which is focused on skills and tools - and will definitely incorporate into the pages here.)
