Please forgive cross postings. Pass along this invite to those you feel
would be interested in this presentation.

I'm forwarding this invite to all community builders, NCDD members, friends
and colleagues who want to tour the features of the This
web tool developed by volunteers enables neighbors to pool human and
tangible resources, self-organize activities, share great ideas, collaborate
on projects and organize community initiatives. It also offers agencies and
businesses a way to list resources such as workshops, speakers, goods and
services. We consider this the "prototype" of a more powerful tool that we
could develop together. This is an open source technology. Let's have some
fun adding some graphics, bells and whistles. We need to weave a global
grass roots safety net ASAP. We've got to work together to help and empower
our neighbors in need!
