      • Gov’t Found out about earthquake through SM
      • Fundraising sites are set up within half a day of incident
      • People report info before Gov’t can sensor Twitter, Pics, or stories

    • Tribes
      • Seth Godin wrote the book “Tribes”
      • Tribes are groups of people with a common interest
      • The internet lets us find others that share the same interest -> silos
      • Tell Stories -> Connect People ->lead movement -> Take Charge
        • Ex: Zappos.com is a place where shoe lovers can talk about shoes & get great customer service
        • Ex: Tom’s shoes allows people to retell the story of their shoes & what the brand stands for
    • tribes
      • How to Create a Tribe
        • 1. Challenge the Status Quo - Ex: Obama Campaign
        • 2. Create a Culture
          • Don’t convert new people, get people that are already passionate to become your followers
          • Find followers that will create new tribes and help you spread the cause
        • 3. Commit to the Cause
          • *People want to feel missed when they’re gone & a tribe leader can fulfill that need*
          • Leaders can provide that for their followers
