Okay, time for shameless begging and plugging…
I’m really interested in going to the NetSquared Conference in San Jose, CA on May 30-31. Web technologies, nonprofits, advocacy, social action, community…what’s not to love?
Thanks to a grant, the conference organizers are offering NetSquared Conference Scholarships that will cover travel, hotel and registration for the recipients.
I want to be there. I can’t possibly go without the scholarship. Can you help me?
They’re taking nominations for the scholarship here. If you’re a regular reader of my blog, and you know how much all this means to me and how much I can contribute to the global conversation on these topics, please take a moment to fill out the form on the page and nominate me. Not to mention the benefit to the colorectal cancer community if I can use the learnings to raise the noise level around the disease.
I’ve already nominated myself, and someone from our organization has sent in a nomination for me (she’s the one who told me about it in the first place). But I think using one’s blog for this purpose is telling, don’t you think? Right away, I’m showing that I “get it,” right? You’ve heard me blather on about Web 2.0 and using the modern web to build C3’s website for the last few months…let them know that I’m worthy!
What you need to know for the form:
Name: Judi Sohn (duh)

I’ll leave it to you to tell them why I should get this. 🙂
