The CTC VISTA Project ( http://www.ctcvista.org) invites you to check out our newest edition of the Project newsletter, the Digest http://www.ctcvista.org/digest/fall06/ The Digest's goal is to highlight the work of the CTC VISTAs, as well as the accomplishments of our participating organizations, and to explore new trends in the use of new digital media and technology in community-based non-profit endeavors.
This fall edition include updates from the Project HQ, experts from the CTC VISTA blogs past & present, and feature articles including:
- One Alumna's Advice for CTC VISTAs, by (former CTC VISTA) Molly Szymanski - "Working on a project that requires knowledge of local resources can be difficult especially if you haven't been in the city long enough to be familiar with community networks."
- Rethinking "Internet for Everyone" & Social Networking , by (current VISTA) Brittney Fosbrook - "Why would case managers use this technology tool, they questioned, if they could barely navigate the internet? It is true, many of the people in the office have not been provided with the intensive technology training that I have taken for granted."
- The Nature of Participatory Culture & Technology , by Nettrice Gaskins - "Participatory culture shifts the focus of digital media creation from one of individual expression to community involvement and civic participation."
- Citizen Speak: A Low-Cost Organizing Online Tool, by Jo Lee - "All I had to talk about was how a small group of activists used a free email advocacy service called CitizenSpeak to battle a multinational railroad company."
- Community Networking Hits Media Mainstream (Almost)!, by Frank Odasz - "Perhaps future programs will focus on the lessons learned from thousands of community technology centers and community networks struggling to educate citizens, generate local content, and provide fiber and wireless broadband access."
