Netsquared Conference Year 3 – N2Y3

Greetings from the Netsquared conference in Santa Clara California! The conference is in full swing with lots of great non-profits pitching their technologies. IMG_9234Some amazing ones so far is Know More http://knowmore.org. This is a Firefox plugin whose role ‘is to raise awareness of corporate abuse, and to serve as a catalyst for direct action against corporate power.’

Pretty impressive stuff!

There are 20 other amazing projects here at the Cisco Systems’ Vineyard Conference Center in Santa Clara and in my honest opinion there are some pretty powerful things going on here and the basis for it all is social change.

Some conference higlights so far;

Maplight.org was the big winner last year and as expected there are a lot of map mashups in contention this year. Some focus on New Orleans and others focus on your community. One lets you track Congress while another is mashup of  29 social action platforms.

One thing is for sure, its going to be a hard vote for this attendee!
