The Networked Nonprofit Roundup: Bay Area Book Party 7/23

Networked Nonprofit

This is a quick roundup of some of the wonderful reviews, blog posts, photos, and videos of The Networked Nonprofit.

If you’re in the Bay Area and didn’t make it to our launch party at TechSoup,  there’s a book party in the East Bay on Friday, July 23rd.  The staff of Donordigital Bay Area are throwing a #netnon book party.  Join us on Friday, July 23, 2010, from 6 to 8 pm at Pro Arts Gallery (http://www.proartsgallery.org/) at 150 Frank Ogawa Plaza in Oakland, a stone’s throw from the Oakland City Center/12th Street BART station. More information here.

The Networked Nonprofit is Available on Kindle!

I don’t yet have a kindle, so I was thrilled to see this tweet from CuriousLee with a photo he shared on our Networked Nonprofit flickr group.

I’ve been enjoying the photos of friends and colleagues with the book popping up on my Facebook Page.  Judith Sol-Dyess and Steve Heye shared a couple of  “peek a boo” photos.   So, I sent them off a couple of the cool NTEN/Netnon t-shirts!   Hmm .. might see some photos popping up in the flickr group of people wearing #netnon t-shirts.

A Few Reviews

Rosetta Thurman created this video review. Rosetta is a fellow book nerd. (Yes, I bring nonprofit books to the beach too….). But what I love about Rosetta is her young nonprofit leader nerdiness. For example, check out her “50 Young Nonprofit Leaders To Follow on Twitter” list. She made it easy to follow these leaders – so let’s spread it far and wide.

My good friend, Roger Carr, wrote a great review of The Networked Nonprofit. More importantly, really appreciated the insights he shared in the comments of this guest post on volunteering by Robert Rosenthal from VolunteerMatch.

I loved this post from Devon Smith analyzing the metrics and reaping insights from her post on The Networked nonprofit. I learned about some new techniques for measuring blog stats and Twitter. So, go read her post now.

And last but not least,  Idealware has given us a 6 Thumbs Up Review from Johanna Bates, Heather Gardner-Madras, and Steve Backman.   Wow, honored!

I’ve been hearing a few reports that copies of the book are hard to find in the UK (and San Francisco)  and I know that they’re working on it!  In the meantime,  Social Edge is hosting a book blog with some excerpts.

If you wrote a review or have a photo to share, let me know in the comments!  And, thank you all for the great response to the book.

    I love that list of “50 Young Nonprofit Leaders to Follow on Twitter”. It inspired me to make a list of my own on TweepML, a very cool tool. I only wish I were on the list, but I’ll just take it as motivation to keep working hard.
