We headed straight from the Soapbox User Summit to Geneva, Switzerland to facilitate the Internet Society’s first-ever Collaborative Leadership Exchange, an interactive community discussion which took place at the start of Global INET 2012.
Our inner crypto geek is hyperventilating as we hang in New York City to help run the Wall Street Journal’s first-ever Data Transparency Weekend, a codeathon where 120 privacy and anonymity geeks will prototype and code tools to help give online users greater control over their online identity and activity.
I landed in the midst of a regional tornado warning for the 2012 Grants Managers Network Conference, where we were grateful to be invited by our friends at Mitchell Kapor Foundation to share Aspiration’s take on how Foundations think about using the so-called cloud in a session titled What Cloud Computing Can Do For You and Your Grantees.
The slides don’t fully reflect the concerns that were discussed in the session. Great questions led to back-and-forth about appropriate levels of distrust for corporate cloud storage and ulterior motives of for-profit entities providing free and cheap cloud offerings to 501c3 organizations.
A huge thanks to Tiffany Price at Kapor and the whole GMN Conference team for inviting us to be a part of the fun!
Have a look at the slideware and let me know what you think!
