I am very excited to announce that Connectipedia is back!
It's been a long time since we last talked about Connectipedia. It was 2010, in fact. If you weren't with us for the first version, you might be wondering what Connectipedia is. Well, simply put, it's a wiki for doing good. It's like Wikipedia, but focuses on information that's relevant to nonprofits, foundations and others working toward social benefit. Connectipedia started life as MMT's in-home knowledge capture tool (if you're interested in the back story, it's here), but we decided to open up the tool for others, so anyone can sign up and start sharing what they know.
Since 2011, we've been making improvements to the user experience and interface. And now we are ready to show it off to the world. Take a look at the new home page:
So please, give it a try. You can browse and read what others have contributed to your heart's content. But it's even more rewarding when you improve existing content, so we encourage you to sign on as a user, using our very very simple form. You can sign up as an individual, add your organization, share a resource on a topic you are passionate about, learning from others doing the same.
For example, Communication & Learning Director Marie Deatherage recently posted notes she took at a day-long symposium on the Future of Public Broadcasting in Oregon. Now she wants others who attended to add to/improve upon her notes, and others knowledgable about public broadcasting to post additional resources, so when foundations or individuals want to know what's going on with public broadcasting in our state, they will be better informed about the issues facing organizations doing this and related work.
I should also take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Mike Phillips, and I am the Communications and Learning Associate here at MMT. I am the in-house expert on Connectipedia. So please, contact memike [at] mmt [dot] org ( here) if you have any questions or want to get involved with the site. Currently, I'm looking for anyone interested in "adopting" a topic on Connectipedia and curating the content in that area.
I'm here to help. Welcome aboard!
