Internet Conscious


On Google +, I've created 61 blogs, 34 communities, 8 pages, 153 videos, 55 maps, and 38,171 photos.  They support my volunteer activities in community nonprofits here in Sonoma County, and tell the stories of heroic work done by my friends.

Where's Your Charity? Put Your Mouth Where Your Money Is!


Now that most of us have filed or tax returns, and revealed to the feds who our favorite charities are, I think it's time to tell each other.  Here's mine:

Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods
Coastwalk California
Sonoma Coast Surfriders
Windham Historical Society
Point Loma High School Alumni Association
Roseland University Prep

Time, Content, and Place Management on the Internet


My efforts to help my young and old friends learn more about the tools available n the Internet to better organize their lives has led me to think about producing some Google Hangouts on Air which show how I use them.  I'll also invite some of those I know have found them useful to explain how it works for them.

Time, content, and place management tools seem to be blending together in application packages which make it easier to keep track of what you and others who work with you are doing.  Those skills are essential for young people to learn if they are to make their way through an increasingly complex future, clouded with online activities and real world demands.

Hopefully, I'll be able to channel the results of my thinking through Sonoma State's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and Santa Rosa Together's work with our young residents.
