Organizing - 2008 edition

In case you missed it, the Olympic torch relay, protest, and redirect that took over the streets of San Francisco on Wednesday was largely facilitated by cellphones and text messaging. In Global Philanthropy Forum-speak this would be called "web-based, purpose-driven social networking" (of course, cell phone texting mostly skips the web part - except you set it up here).

So what for philanthropy? This is how global activism happens now.
