The Revolution is Online

Whenever I lead a nonprofit workshop about Web 2.0, social media or viral marketing, nonprofits always want to know: "But will it work?"

I always say yes, and tell various anecdotes about organizations or individuals that have used the Internet to grow their presence.

And now I have another one.

Yesterday, I led a discussion for Vanderbilt student leaders about what it means to be a servant leaders, and how the principles of servant leadership can enhance their impact and improve their organizations.

I put together some slides for my talk and used them last night. There were 10 students in attendance.

That means ten people saw my presentation.

But, after putting my slides online, it was featured on the SlideShare homepage. As of right now, 429 people have seen it.

Do the math. Then, get online or give up.

I believe that the revolution is online, but STILL few young people know about all the tools available to them. They might know facebook, my space, wikipedia everything, and never open a phonebook or map again--those are the tools they know; they need to learn more!

yes my friend, the feeling is mutual.

the revolution will not be televised
