roots.lab promotes the rapid evolution of social-web tools and models for advocacy:
Groups that adapt quickly to what’s happening in online spaces will attract a new generation of constituents deputized as evangelists of the group’s mission; as for groups that fall behind, I think many of them will suffer.
I concur. So now, how to enable this change - which for some organisations will be quite difficult? Okay, so this is not a Friday night kind of question... but something to continually keep in mind whilst promoting quick adaptation.
On a lighter note, Ian has promised to start a practice of reviewing online advocacy websites. I can't wait!
