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.
Pierce Family Foundation
David is a proud grandfather living in NW Lower Michigan. David works for a small family foundation based in Chicago where he takes care of the technology needs of 7 NPOs in the Chicago area. He loves his job, the amazing people he gets to work with and the organizations he gets to help.
Community Media Workshop
Gordon Mayer is vice president of Community Media Workshop, a Midwest nonprofit whose mission is to
diversify voices in the news and public debate. Journalists rely on its
newstips and sourcing services, and more than 2,000 nonprofit
communicators a year access the services of the Workshop: the Getting
On the Air, Online & Into Print media guide, Making Media
Connections annual conference, plus scheduled, custom, and free
workshops on communications. His exposure to social media began with 40
community organizers chanting "listserv now, listerv now!" in 1998.
It's been mostly uphill since.
The Movement Disorder Society
Heidi is a Website Project Manager for The Movement Disorder Society, an
international professional medical society of 3,500 members. Our members
are researchers and physcians who specialize in the neurosciences. We
are operated by an AMC, headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.
Before I joined MDS, I worked as a reporter, copy editor and online
producer for Wisconsin's largest daily newspaper, the Milwaukee Journal
Sentinel. That is where I was introduced to the Internet in 1999 - WAY
before I had even heard of HTML, and got my "formal" training as a Web
My hobbies include trail hiking, travel abroad, journaling, blogging (two very distinct things!), Vespas, and shopping the local farmers markets.
Adam grew up near Nashville, TN, and graduated from the University of Tennessee with a B.A. in Rhetoric and Writing. After college, electoral politics took him to Connecticut, Oklahoma, back to Tennessee, and then to New Hampshire. After that, he settled in Hartford, CT, to work on nonprofit legislative campaigns; focusing on marriage for same-sex couples, gender identity and expression protections, various civil justice issues, and now, universal health care. Adam has always described himself as an "accidental techie," but is happy to have just landed a job that pays him for spending hours on Facebook and Twitter. When not creating advocacy campaigns, Adam enjoys reading about the American Revolution, listening to This American Life, playing with his dog, and tallying how many times his coworkers want to put "URGENT!!!" in their member emails.
