Meet the NTEN Community
The NTEN Community is full of great folks. Here are just a few of them.
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.
Britt Bravo is a social web consultant and career coach who teaches individuals and organizations how to realize their big vision and be a powerful force for good. She writes for two blogs: Have Fun Do Good and BlogHer, and produces the Big Vision Podcast and the Arts and Healing Podcast. She also hosts Echoing Green’s podcast, Be Bold : Create a Career with Impact. Bravo is a frequent speaker and trainer who has presented at the Craigslist Foundation Nonprofit Boot Camp, the Bioneers Conference, the Stanford Women’s Leadership Conference, the Writing for Change Conference, and the BlogHer Conference. In 2007, The East Bay Express named her the Best Podcaster/Blogger Most Dedicated to Social Change.
In my role as Interactive Communications Manager at Convio, I manage the Connection Cafe blog, all things new media related including our social media sites as well as all Convio Web sites. An Internet-addicted, new media loving communications professional, I'm always eager to learn about the latest and greatest in interactive communications and online marketing. The ability to pair my work in online communications with helping our nonprofit clients in the process makes my job even more fulfilling.
In my spare time, you can usually find me spending time outdoors in an Austin water hole with my two pups, gardening, curling up and reading a great book, playing a competitive game of Wii bowling or watching the long list of programs I regularly schedule to record on my DVR.
And true to my NTENy award -- you can always find me on Twitter at @jordanv
