Jennifer over at TechSoup sends me news about a cool initiative to fund non-profit tech projects:
NetSquared Year Two (N2Y2) is set for May 29-30 in San Jose, and we’re looking for talented, engaged developers, hackers, nonprofits, etc. to propose cool new tech projects for social good. Submit project nominations by midnight PST on April 6th. 20 projects will have a chance to compete for $100,000 cash from the NetSquared Innovation Fund.
Project representatives will make their pitches to developers, funders, thinkers and disseminators. Every project should receive a big boost in much needed resources, and a few will get a nice dollop of cash on top of it, which will be awarded at the conference by community vote. View nominated projects and be sure to join the online community vote beginning on April 9th.
There’s a number of SL-related proposals on the table including ManorMeta, the SL Relay for Life, Info Island / Rennaissance Era , and the Avatar Action Center. Remember, even if you aren’t submitting anything, you can help choose the winners by voting for your favorite project on April 9.
