do it online

in the process of reading The Wealth of Networks. a bit sad that i came across this text a whole year after its publication. a reading of this a few months earlier would have helped me articulate my thoughts during discussions on change and emergence.

all of my favorite networking sites have really taken off this year: Zopa (a site where members can borrow and invest in each other), meetup (a forum where groups can self-organize themselves.. i used this to find kiswahili speakers in NYC), GlobalGiving and Kiva (sites where the individuals can “shop” for grassroots initiatives to fund), OAN (opensource architecture), craftzine and instructables (do-it-yourself, then share) and.. well.. the list goes on and on. These are all very exciting developments where people are networking and self-organizing. I’m terribly excited to see what unfolds in 2008.
