Ning/Social Networking Expert Needed for My Pops

I have a personal request for all you Ning and social networking experts out there. My Dad is involved in the creation of the Global Center for Cultural Enterprise and Entrepreneurship which will support cultural entrepreneurs around the world with training, tech support, and policy and funding resources.

Cultural entrepreneurs are change agents who leverage cultural knowledge and innovation to create thriving economic systems, like Lan Tran, the General Manager of Craft Link, a Vietnamese NGO organization that helps craft producers to improve their livelihoods through craft while helping to revive and promote traditional culture and skills.

They are using Ning to build a social network and need some help setting it up to meet their needs, for example, they'd like to incorporate LinkedIn on the site. They are looking for general social networking advice as well.

I just sent them Jusin Perkins of Care2's ROI Calcualator for Social Networking, but I'm not enough of a Ning expert to be of more help than that.

You can see what they have so far on Ning here and their wiki here.

If you'd like to help them, email Alice Loy and Tom Aageson at

    i can't help myself but i've posted a request over at the ning grasshoppers group:

    The 'have fun, do good' creed is one every member there agrees with.

  2. Thanks for spreading the word!
