I asked our 10:10 Anchors to tell me what they are into right now -- that relates to Web of Change core values that is. Here is what members of the team are giving two thumbs up.
Dave Averill's Current Pick
Six levels for connecting people and social change -- The most effective social change organizations understand how to wield their portfolio of engagement tactics in Zen-like fashion; knowing just what kind of touch is called for to influence the outcomes of a particular decision.
Nicholas Klassen' Current Pick
In a field full of creative experimentation, this is my favourite recent example. Greenpeace supporters took over Nestle's Facebook page, and the corporation's hamfisted response -- removal of a Greenpeace Youtube video, threatening to censor Facebook users, etc. -- was widely panned as a massive social media fail.

LucidChart has been a revelation in garden planning. How do four Ecovillage gardeners collaborate to plan this year’s crops? We created a garden plan with the Lucid Chart flowcharting tool. We can each log in and add our favourite seeds to the beds. I can print out the map and take it to the garden and save it as a historical reference to ensure next year’s plants are rotated to keep the soil healthy. There is a place for collaborative online tools even in an organic garden!
