Meet the NTEN Community
The NTEN Community is full of great folks. Here are just a few of them.
Peter is the founder of Social Actions and the author of a blog called About Micro-Philanthropy. Social Actions helps individuals and organizations use social media to plan, implement, and support peer-to-peer social change campaigns so that grassroots solutions to local and global problems can flourish. He's presented and contributed content for NTEN, TechSoup, NetSquared, and Personal Democracy Forum about starting social actions and selecting the right combination of technology platforms. The underlying assumption of Peter's work is that person-to-person social actions are an excellent incubator for broad social change.
Harold Grinspoon Foundation
Kevin is the Technology Program Manager at the Grinspoon Institute for
Jewish Philanthropy. He leverages his management consulting background
to help nonprofit Jewish overnight camps utilize technology effectively
to reach their fundraising and outreach goals. Kevin also helps various
other nonprofits better understand the challenges and opportunities
offered by web2.0 technologies.
Kevin lives in Western Massachusetts with his wife and two young sons. He is a huge Siena College basketball fan (Go Saints!) and enjoys writing screenplays, short stories, and children's books.
Katrin Verclas is co-founder and editor of MobileActive.org, a global network of practitioners using mobile phones in social change work. She was, until recently, also the Executive Director of NTEN, and now sits on the Board. Katrin is passionate about the use of technology in democratic participation, economic empowerment, community organizing, and government accountability. She believes in the importance of community, the power of networks, the good will of people, our ability to collaborate for a common good, the inherent political-ness of everyday life, and the power of people using technology to better this world. She is currently engaged in researching and writing a publication on mobile use in civil society with the UN Foundation and Vodafone Foundation Group, among other projects.
Laura is the founder and director of Idealware, where she directs its research and writing to provide candid reports and articles about nonprofit software. She has been working in the software sector for more than ten years and is a frequent speaker and writer on nonprofit technology topics.
