Let’s bring some humor to a situation:

In light of Tuesday’s Downtown Berkeley power outage, and the subsequent exodus (“no internet, agh!”), it reminded me of this comedian’s bit about how “Everything’s amazing, and nobody’s happy.” 

It reminded me of 3 particular things Continue reading

Would You Sell Youself for Social Change?

Introducing…The Life Investment. Have you ever though about what it would be like if people could use themselves as as an investment and not just their project?  Join the Social Capital Markets and Hub Bay Area communities on Wednesday, March 3 at 6:30 p.m. for an event unlike any other you’ve been to.  As social entrepreneurs scavenge for resources to fuel their mission, a new age is dawning in social capital. The Thrust Fund is offering Social Entrepreneurs $300-$600K in exchange for 3-6% of their life’s earnings based on faith in “The People” rather than “The Idea.”
This event will be a chance for Hub and SoCap communities to come together  for an evening with people putting their lives on the line in a new mixture of trust and risk, power and money, giving and receiving, hope and fear. A new force to get the things done that need to be done may be emerging. People powered capital; a movement, not an asset class. Be part of it.
If you’re a Hub Member, we’ll give you 50% off the ticket price! For the discount code please, check your email. Please sign up here and we hope to see you at the event!

Working Wikily Recap

To all who attended the Working Wikily event last Tuesday, we’d like to say thank you for coming to The Hub! To recap,  Noah Flower of the Monitor Institute led an engaging and interactive discussion about how to effectively use social networking sites and tools. One of the take- home points was that the most useful social networking tools are ones that people are familiar with, or that are most pertinent in the community one is trying to target. It was a great, educational event that allowed members to share their personal questions  and give feedback to others in order to better their organization or enterprise’s social network.

You can check out the slides from the event here :
