Did you miss SXSW Interactive? Check out this excellent workshop from Beth Kanter & friends!

March 18, 2009

picture-8I didn’t get to go to Austin this year for the SXSW interactive conference (I’m going to NTEN instead: the Nonprofit Technology Network conference).

I did however get to remotely participate (via Twitter) in Nonprofit Social Media guru (and my idol) Beth Kanter’s excellent workshop on ROI for Nonprofit Social Media campaigns.

Not only was the presentation formatted as a Poetry Slam (genius!), but it offered excellent perspectives from a number of pioneers in the field of nonprofit tech or social media for social good. We were instructed to follow the hastag #ROI on Twitter for questions and discussion from the session. Due to the lively tweet-fueled discussion, folks who monitor Twitter trends started asking why “ROI” suddenly became the top hashtag for that day.

Read more about reflections about the presentation on Beth Kanter’s blog and here.

So I’m kinda sick about the fact that I missed this monumental event in the history of NonprofitTech presentations. But I hope she does a repeat at NTEN next month!
