Climate Change Update - how screwed are we? and Giving the Enlightenment Another Five Hundred Years - Bill Thompson
Web 2.0 is still a confusing world for many non techies. But the growth of simple and free online platforms means anyone can blog, network and communicate. ‘Spread the web’ is about my experiences sharing basic web skills to help an NGO communicate better. I helped them open up closed conferences through a basic Wordpress site, Youtube, Flickr, Twitter etc. We ended up helping to live blog a conference from Chile! But the organisation now has the skills themselves for the future. How can UK geeks have the most impact? Building web capacity in the third sector by knowledge transfer could be the best thing we do for civil society. Here or in the developing world (see GeekCorps). Each one, teach one.
