  • markwalkerdotnet Mark Walker hi Will [again]. There are a couple of pointers to existing organisations esp IT4communities, which brokers IT professionals and UK third sector orgs by converting an initial request for help into a bite-sized brief. There's also www.do-it.org which is an online database of volunteering opportunities. We tried a local model some years ago in Brighton [awash with web designers and techie nerds] called www.paratechnics.org.uk [cool graphics huh?]. It's fallen into disuse somewhat as we discovered the real challenge is converting needs of orgs into something that tech volunteers can actually deliver. It's not impossible by any means but can be resource intensive and difficult to fund [ask IT4Communities, who now charge for their service]. hope this helps? Mark 4 years ago

  • danbri Dan Brickley, Other at FOAF project, SpyPixel Ltd., misc. Did anything come out of this? I've become quite interested in trying to find a way to bridge the skills of people I know in the Web standards scene (SemWeb, RDF, etc) with practical needs of various nonprofit groups (human rights etc.). Is there a mailing list / wiki /etc for bouncing around ideas? 4 years ago
