MY NEW PROFILE
I come to <Ned> from 2.5+ years of incredible experiences and growth at omidyar.net.
See if you can figure out which I prefer!
I have recently finished my PhD in Integral Development Studies at Ubon Ratchathani University in Thailand and have returned to the US. I am investigating how I can apply my research to help in the redevelopment of the Greater Miami Valley through the use of a small business support network, alternative currencies, and other community development and education tools. I can be found active on Facebook under Linda Eggleston Nowakowski.
When I first came to meet many of the people in this community back in our old home on onet, I was totally awed by the work of Sue Braiden. She started the "I Took the Pledge" Campaign. That pledge asked:
HAVE YOU TAKEN THE PLEDGE?
- I am here because I believe in making the world a better place.
- I believe in treating others with trust and respect.
- I believe everyone has something to contribute.
I talked to Sue and have agreed with her to leave that campaign in its original home. However, I want each of you to know that I am here because I believe in making the world a better place and I believe this is a great place with an awesome group of people to do that. I believe in treating others with trust and respect online and face to face. I believe that the first step we are taking here of using our full real names is a step in helping us to be accountable for our words and actions. If you believe I have treated you or someone else with a lack of trust or respect, please point it out to me so that I can repair the damage I have unintentionally done. And lastly, I believe everyone has something to contribute so please, please share what you have!
Recently I had occasion to worry about a friend online that I had not heard from as regularly as normal. Based on that I am providing the following information, in case anyone might worry about me!
Hopefully, no one will ever feel like they need to use it!
I am a member of the <Ned> Board of Directors and if you have any questions or need any help, feel free to message me.
Thanks to each of you...
