    • I couldn’t sleep. It was 1 am. So I checked Twitter.
    • A [RSS] feed-freenzy from @Heritage. And there it was. One headline, in particular, caught my eye…
    • Assaulted by Sex Ed (so, naturally, I clicked on the accompanying link)
    • Holy insinuation, Batman! “ immoral sex indoctrination ” “ perverted and immoral sex propagandists ” “ subjected to pornographic , immoral and medically false instruction”
    • And I started writing. It was now 2 am. And planning. And emailing.
    • Support started to pour in. My response was live by 1 pm. Others wanted to help. So I launched something else…
    • … a petition on Act.ly (and it “caught fire”). http://act.ly/e6
    • I also responded in the original medium. It ran online and in print as the “featured letter.”
    • I then ran targeted Facebook ads. The landing pages were my articles and petition.
    • 679,305 impressions | 505 clicks | $312.58
    • Posted images on Flickr (tagged / optimized).
    • Monitoring Twitter Following relevant accounts Having activists I could quickly reach Having blogger relationships in place Understanding Facebook advertising Documenting everything on Flickr Responding in the medium via a LtE Knowing about Act.ly Moving quickly Connecting IRL Offline integration Continued activation Dialogue What Worked What Was Missing
