Ben-Horin created TechSoup Global (as "CompuMentor") in 1987 by tapping volunteer resources on the WELL, one of the first online communities.

Save The World Marketing I am working on a concept with a group of Internet marketers and writers called "Save The World Marketing", this piece about how Daniel Ben-Horin used technology to create community, mentorship, competitive collaboration and a sum of the parts is greater than the whole fits the model perfectly. Great scoop by Beth Kanter. The quickly disappearing line between nonprofit and for profit go to market strategies, another key theme of Save The World Marketing, is a key theme for Beth.

The New Branding
If you are a marketer you aren't in control anymore. Debatable if you ever were as in control as it appeared, but collaboration and tribes rule the world now. We collide with our consumers and they with us so much and in so many ways now the lines between marketers, advocates and consumers are eroding fast. This post is well summarized by Ferananda isn't full of new revelations as much as points that need to be made over and over until we accept and act.

Most engaged couples, if they’re not doing the shotgun boogie, start a gift registry for wedding attendees that includes dishes, silverware, kitchen appliances or other household necessities. Now they can add a 2013 Dodge Dart to their list.
Dodge Creates Cool Social "Registry"
Buying a car SHOULD be a social event. We don't buy cars all that often anymore, not nearly every year like my grandfather. Kudos to Doge for creating a way to "fund the car" one social piece and donation at a time. They creative use of a "gift registry" creates a team around buying a car. The app will increase the size of the market for Dodge because it expands how a car can be "financed" via a mini-crowdfunding campaign. If you were a REALLY creative Internet marketer and you were about to get married you would create a campaign and "fund the car". Another cool idea would be to fund the car with friends and friends of friends and then donate the money to a good cause and buy the car yourself. Share that end goal in the copy of course, but "fund the car" could be a cool wedding present / save the world gift.
