The Idea Camp, twitter and innovation

leadership I am still digesting The Idea Camp that Charles Lee spawned masterfully this last week. Imagine several hundred innovative, creative and passionate believers with a heart to show mercy on our world gathering to not only express ideas but to create solutions. Go to http://theideacamp.ning.com/ to get a login and begin networking with filmmakers, activists, church leaders, and business leaders. Thanks to Charles for an amazing and catalyzing event!

Twitter seems to be an amazing tool to connect and stay connected. In a class of 30, Cynthia Ware reminded me in an article on her blog that only one person out of that group was NOT on twitter.com! Cynthia, who invited me to facilitate a workshop on social media has a list of the twitter peeps gathering on her site today. What a privelige to work with her and to be energized by the conversation about how these tools are working and to help trouble shoot some problems with a couple after the session. (Twitter ID: Cynthia is @cynthiaware and I am @rkweblog )

With innovation, change becomes a way of life. In today’s culture we as Christians have to be willing to innovate and collaborate more than ever. As a church leader, I know how that can be hard. But, I also see the potential to reach people with the message and love of Jesus greater than ever in history!

Twitter… Are you in?

  1. I’m on twitter as @markgoodyear but for me the verdict is still out. Here are my numbers: last month I had 4.5% of my traffic coming from Twitter and/or Facebook profile clicks (which feeds from my blog to twitter to facebook). That was 22% of my total referrals.
    That said, I’m not interested in Twitter as a traffic engine, just a community tool. Verdict is still out on whether it helps build relationships.

  9. Mark…my judgment so far is that twitter is best at solidifying already made contacts and facilitates meeting new people. The other thing interesting, there are people attending our church because of twitter. The real-life impact is not really known yet, except that it is one way to connect.
    Anyway, you would have loved the Idea Camp!!
