NPtech + causes + open source + social media

JD LasicaAs part of our silo-busting effort at Socialbrite, we’ll be showcasing cool technologies that haven’t received enough attention in the nonprofit and social change worlds. So here’s a one-minute video, announcing the launch of Socialbrite, that I created last night on Animoto:

Introducing Socialbrite.org. Nonprofit tech + Causes + Open source + Social media.

We’re using it at the top of our Media Center.

Check out Animoto: They’re doing amazing things with a very small staff. You can try out a few remixes for free, and choose from music and images on their site; after that, it’s 3 bucks a video or $30 a year.

I chose to upload Enur: “Calabria (Club Mix)” — given that it’s only a 60-second snippet and has a noncommercial context here, it clearly falls within fair use. (One image included in the video is Creative Commons licensed: Muchilottu Bhagavathy Theyyam ceremonial mask by freebird (bobinson).)JD Lasica, founder and former editor of Socialbrite, is co-founder of Cruiseable.
