This is a busy travelling work week for me. So here are some things of note and some tunes for a Tuesday:
We Are Media
NTEN's Social Media curriculum project where the community is the curriculum. Each week there will be a new theme related to social media and nonprofits. One of the goals of the project is to help identify the best existing resources, people, and case studies that will give nonprofit organizations the knowledge and resources they need to use social media to change the world. This week's theme: Dealing with Resistance
The Baudcast – Episode 11

The panel discussion includes Chad Norman (Internet Marketing Manager), Melanie Milonas (Public Relations Manager), Jamie Holiday (Internal Communication Coordinator), Chris Harris (Email Services Specialist), Nigel Tufnel, and me.
Building Your Presence on a Budget
The Chronicle of Philanthropy's latest live discussion is today and it's all about building your online presence on a budget. Beth Kanter, nonprofit social media guru, and The Nature Conservancy's Jonathon Colman are the guests on this panel discussion. If you can't join in at 12pm today then just wait for the transcript to be posted.
The Workin' Man
What does it say about the influence of gaming when Rock Band helps to unearth a never released guitar solo on the classic Rush song Working Man? Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson did an interview where the hidden track came from. You can give "the vault" version of the song a listen on YouTube. Next stop could be re-releasing the song on iTunes.
