Mark your calendars--this month's MeetUp is a week early on Wed. Oct. 21st for a special Online Community MeetUp.
TechSoup Global (your MeetUp host) is hosting a Digital Storytelling Online Event and Challenge. This free event experiments with combining different community platforms for participation: webinars, forums, Tweetchat and the virtual world of Second Life. The webinars kicked off the Community Challenge where social benefit organizations are encouraged to submit a digital story (either a 60-second YouTube video or Goldmail or 5-panel picture story on Flickr).
The Challenge is on, and organizations have through Friday Oct. 16th to submit to the Digital Storytelling Online Event and Challenge. Expert hosts from the webinars are in the TechSoup forums to answer any digital storytelling questions.
Here's the best part: Join us for the Oct. MeetUp, Wednesday October 21st, 7PM, at TechSoup headquarters in San Francisco for a mixed reality Digital Storytelling Screening and Awards Party. Watch the challenge submissions from fellow social changemakers, broadcasting live in San Francisco, streamed on the web, discussed on TweetChat and projected into the virtual world of Second Life. Don't miss this unique opportunity to experience the interaction of community channels through this multi-channeled event.
Winning submissions will be selected and prizes awarded at the TechSoup Headquarters, 525 Brannan Street, Suite 300, San Francisco, and virtually in Second Life at TechSoup's Nonprofit Commons.
Stay tuned to the event page and the Twitter #tsdigs hashtag for more details.
