If there’s one thing I took away from #Progress2015, it’s that we need each other.
We need to be actively build deep cross-campaign and inter-community relationships. Our causes are all STRONGLY connected and so are our audiences – but we as individual people are not yet, and we need to be.
So hi, I’m Luke. I run online comms for a union, consult in online comms for several popular hip hop artists and a heap of causes, and have been managing/admin in online communities since IRC in 1996.
I am very interested in the space where online communities and communication meets (positive) real world actions.
I’ve got experience in turning people out to gigs/protests/actions, crowd-sourcing for causes (or to get me to Progress!), obsessively following hashtags with up-to-the-moment live coverage of amazing events overseas when I should be sleeping, developing new friendships//meeting new people online.
Tonight we had another very productive organising meeting for the People’s Climate Mobilisation in Perth on September 21.
I’ve been loving having two dogs, they’re hilarious together, they’re constantly play fighting and just as often falling over each other. Old dog Dan (he’s only 7) has been patient with the often annoying pup, but has also been teaching him the rules and telling him off when he breaks them.
Kind of cool to watch.
Got another bed for the dogs yesterday, as Watson (young pup) had fully claimed Dan’s bed since the first night he stayed here.
The goop that filled Watsons’ eyes prior to us adopting him is almost all cleared up now, he shouldn’t need any eye drops. Tomorrow we take him to the vet for a blood test and full health check, standard procedure and he seems pretty healthy and happy to me!
Alright, it’s almost midnight and I’m off to bed. 🙂
