The second Tuesday of each month, social changemakers and web innovators get together to network, socialize and share ideas at Net Tuesday, an event produced by NetSquared, http://www.netsquared.org, a project of TechSoup, http://www.techsoup.org.
This month our presenters will be Jonathan Boutelle, Co-founder and CTO of SlideShare (http://www.slideshare.net), a rapidly growing site for hosting and sharing presentations, and Cindy Li, Director of Content for Scrapblog (http://www.scrapblog.com), an online scrapbooking website where you create a world for your pictures.
Jonathan was previously the software architect of MindCanvas, a ground-breaking research tool that uses game-like experiences for customer research. Jon likes building simple web applications that solve a real need, really well. Jonathan's interests lie at the intersection of technology, business, and customer experience. He conceived of SlideShare while he was helping to organize Delhi BarCamp. Jonathan studied Computer Science at Brown University. He writes an occasional article on his blog, http://www.jonathanboutelle.com
Cindy will be introducing how Scrapblog can promote non-profit events using her last volunteer project as an example. The volunteer project started with her love of photography and was for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society's 20th Anniversary Ball in Washington, DC.
Refreshments are sponsored by City CarShare (http://www.citycarshare.org). City CarShare is a Bay Area nonprofit on a mission to provide convenient, affordable access to cars so that we can reduce individual car ownership—and improve the environment and quality of life in our cities.
