Now they are moving forward and shaking the ground.

Here's a press release on the "Event on Web 2.0 for Social Change Features Tech and Social Visionaries; TechSoup NetSquared Conference to Drive Global Nonprofit Web Innovation" at a "Conference (hosted by Cisco Systems on May 30-31, 2006 in San Jose, CA), [when] early adopters, technologists, corporations, nonprofit and non-governmental leaders, and philanthropists will convene and take concrete steps towards making the Internet a tool for social change using blogging, vlogging, tagging, and other Social Web technologies." (emphasis mine)

Just one of the things I wanted to happen when I started sensing the value of Social Software for Folk Knowledge Management in September 2005. Now is Web 2.0 social empowerment a stretch or not?
