Poverty Program Coming Our Way

A program aimed at reducing poverty in North-Central Florida is about to move into its third round of communities. Twenty-one towns are currently in the Horizons program. Four were in the first stage, and 15 more are now going to benefit from the program.

The program trains community leaders on ways to improve the local economy, increase community pride and fight poverty. The effort is funded by the North Central Area Foundation and administered by the University of Florida Cooperative Extension Service.

Project Director Marcy Fuentes says the application deadline for people in the community who want to take part in this program starts the first of November.

All social media is local

This is an Edelman Web Seminar which seems very interesting and can accessed through Steve Rubel's blog:

On another note, just like Steve Rubel wrote, all media is social (damn right!). He wrote:

"Folks, it's time for all of us, especially "The Joes," to give ourselves the self-respect we deserve by calling all of this work "media." Otherwise, by continuing to propagate the term "social media" we're just reserving our seat at the kids table for our little cut up pieces of chicken. it's time to feast on drumsticks like the adults do. Google doesn't delineate. So why should we?"

His blog is awesome (I obviously like it). You can read his postings by clicking here.
