I Want YOU at the Forum

The first Tactical Philanthropy Forum is being held in San Francisco. While I’m honored by the huge interest in the event, this blog’s readership is not concentrated geographically and so the vast majority of readers don’t have the option of participating… But there is a way.

I will now begin accepting online videos with questions posed to Paul Brest and Bill Somerville. Just record a video clip no longer than 30 seconds, upload it to any of the video portals listed below and email me a link to the video. A collection of the videos will be played at the Forum for the guests to answer live. We’ll also be recording and posting video of the entire Forum event here at Tactical Philanthropy in the days after the event.

The Tactical Philanthropy Community usually comes up with better ideas that I do, so if you have your own thoughts about how to use the video content just let me know. If anyone watched the CNN/YouTube presidential debates, you know that some people got very creative.

Here’s the list of portals that you can post your video to for consideration in this project:

  • Youtube
  • Blip.tv
  • Break.com
  • Dailymotion
  • LiveVideo
  • MetaCafe
  • MyVideo.de
  • Veoh
  • Lulu.tv
  • Vids.myspace.com
  • Vimeo

Don’t forget that a wait list has been started for the Forum now that it has sold out. I’m still hoping to squeeze in some more seats so add yourself to the wait list for first shot at any new seats. I’ll also send you a pre-announcement to the next Forum event so you can be sure to register early if you don’t get into this one.

    How likely would it be to have one of these in Seattle?

  2. There has been a lot of interest from Seattle. I hope we get to bring one up your way.

    Made me think of google’s new play, Google Moderator. Except I’m not sure they’re touching video yet.
