Watch Out, Social Web! Here Comes WIM!
For the past several months, a few of us on the WIM staff have been brainstorming, re-thinking, dreaming and learning. Our main question has been: “How can we utilize technology for the kingdom of God?”
I had been working on a new website for WIM for months already, but a shift happened when Andy Toth, our Director of Training, came into my office and and dropped a DVD on my desk. I was dreading watching it because the cover looked really boring (I know, I know, I’m not supposed to judge by that). When I finally got around to watching it, I was blown away by the implications. I was hearing about things like Web 2.0, donor forums, and cause-centered giving. My goal for the new WIM website changed from making a pretty design to creating a place to have a conversation with you, our friends and supporters. I want you to have the ability to collaborate, share, and interact with WIM (and each other) in a more personal way. What causes do you think are important? How do you want to be involved? And how can we help you do that?
That’s why I’m excited about our new website. Yeah, hopefully it looks good, but mostly I hope it will be a tool that helps us start a conversation. Thanks for your willingness to be a part.
