Went to the NetSquared reception this evening. What an incredible group of people! I personally talked to folks from Freecycle
, Democracy Player
, and YouthAssets
. These are amazing people. Many of them have only recently gotten 501c3 status, and are pursuing these projects on their own time
. I thought I was the only person in the world doing that, but I met several people tonight who have contributed endless dollars and hours to their causes just because they believe that the world needs to change! I'm not alone!
I am greatly looking forward to meeting more of you all in the next two days, and I really enjoyed talking to those of you whom I met. You are really committed, socially conscious, tech-savvy people who are trying very hard to improve lives.
When we first walked into the hotel, we saw a bunch of people with stickers on their laptops sitting in the lobby to get the free wifi, and Brian said, "I think we've found our tribe". And how!
