Greetings from Moscow
Ted Hart lectured this week at the NGO School and USA Embassy
Ted Hart sends a special thank you to everyone at the NGO School and United States Embassy in Moscow who were so helpful in making his visit there last week such a great success.
The training group at the NGO School created the video below as a special greeting to the world. Much was learned about fundraising online and social networking strategies for NGO/nonprofits. Everyone had a great time too!
Ted's Note: Latitude provides an interesting next step to social networking, your donors would have to opt into the service, which most feel is unlikely, but look how many millions are posting information to Twitter every day. This will grow and change, but the technology is amazing for bringing people together. Check it out for charity events and other gatherings, email us your creative uses of Latitude (firstname.lastname@example.org)
With an upgrade to its mobile maps, Google Inc. hopes to prove it can track people on the go as effectively as it searches for information on the Internet.
The new software released Wednesday will enable people with mobile phones and other wireless devices to automatically share their whereabouts with family and friends.
The feature, dubbed "Latitude," expands upon a tool introduced in 2007 to allow mobile phone users to check their own location on a Google map with the press of a button.
"This adds a social flavor to Google maps and makes it more fun," said Steve Lee, a Google product manager.
It could also raise privacy concerns, but Google is doing its best to avoid a backlash by requiring each user to manually turn on the tracking software and making it easy to turn off or limit access to the service.
Google also is promising not to retain any information about its users' movements. Only the last location picked up by the tracking service will be stored on Google's computers, Lee said.
The software plots a user's location — marked by a personal picture on Google's map — by relying on cell phone towers, global positioning systems or a Wi-Fi connection to deduce their location. The system can follow people's travels in the United States and 26 other countries.
It's left up to each user to decide who can monitor their location. (for full article by Associated Press' MICHAEL LIEDTKE click below)
