Change of format for the September 16th Ethos Roundtable session

Unfortunately, our featured guest for Tuesday, Jeff Wood of eHope, will not be able join us as scheduled. He will be with a critically ill patient and his family. Of course, our thoughts and prayers are with them all. We have rescheduled Jeff's presentation at the Ethos Roundtable for Tuesday, December 16th.

However, the Ethos Roundtable will definitely meet this Tuesday, even though Jeff will be unable to be there.

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008
4:30 - 6:00 pm
Charles Hotel
1 Bennett Street
Harvard Square, Cambridge

Instead of the scheduled presentation, we will be having an "open mike" Ethos Roundtable session.

This doesn't actually mean that there will be a microphone or that anyone will be asked to perform; it does mean that it's an open discussion of any ideas that attendees might want to bring to the table. These ideas might pertain to your own projects, or to presenters that you'd like the Ethos Roundtable to invite to future sessions.

John Hopkins has very graciously agreed to kick off the session on September 16th with a brief presentation about HubUnity, a web-based service that provides tools to collect, organize and manage connections with everything local, such as local schools, groups, businesses, events, and news.

If you'd like to give a brief presentation on an concept or ongoing project that is relevant to ethos and technology for positive social change, please feel free to email us at ethos.roundtable (at) gmail (dot) com. Or just show up!

At the conclusion of the Ethos Roundtable session, we will stroll down the hall to enjoy the good company, food, and drink at the 501 Tech Club that is so generously underwritten by TechFoundation. The 501 Tech Club is the monthly gathering of technology professionals who work with nonprofit organizations.

As always, there's no need to make a reservation to attend Ethos Roundtable events. However, if you're planning to attend the Boston 501 Tech Club event at 6:00 pm, we ask that you send an email to Kathleen Sherwin of TechFoundation (ksherwin AT techfoundation DOT org).

See you on Tuesday!
