My last blog post *Seth’s Hierarchy of Presentations* has created heaps of ‘movement’ across many of my social spaces including Twitter, Facebook, Slideshare and this Blog. One comment from The Best of Fundraising Blog lead me to their previous post titled ‘Why I’m Smiling & Moving’. As fate has it, this post is all about giving and receiving … if you put stuff out there for people to use, they build on it and you get something back.

I’m on a roll! My last few posts have been inspired by my reading and reflections on Impro. Like any parent, I want my kids to thrive, be passionate and happy.

Hat Tip to Garr Reynolds for this one … The Girl Effect website is all about a ‘movement’ on the rise. It starts with the premise that adolescent girls living in the developing world, if given the chance to participate in their own community, can make a difference … collectively (that’s many millions!) they can change the course of humanity. They have developed this wonderfully simple video to communicate their message. Best to watch it at their website here. Here’s the embedded version … Ok, so what? Here’s some questions that sprang to my mind … What if we used …
