Life with a Scarlet Letter

This blog post is running in support of my Punish Geoff Fundraiser: Civilination! Please consider a donation to support better online conversations. At the time of publishing, we have raised more than $3,000 for the Civilination Academy. Long-term readers know I have attempted to evolve my language to become more mindful of others. Part of that reparation is learning to live with that negative reputation publicly — my proverbial Scarlet Letter — and handle new disagreements. At SxSW two different people informed me how a person was telling everyone what an A&^hole I was every time my name came up. It’s no coincidence that this person is someone I wrangled with on here and elsewhere. He’s not the only one. So the damage […]

Punish Geoff Fundraiser: Civilination!

My former colleague Andrea Weckerle is organizing a fundraiser to build a Civilination Academy for Online Conflict Management.

Mark Horvath on Punish Geoff Fundraiser Impact

Mark Horvath sent this video last night to thank all of the people who donated to and shared The Punish Geoff Fundraiser. Thank you to the 30 donors who have made $2055, and a significant impact on InvisiblePeople‘s drive across the country. Every dollar counts against a matching grant offered by the Pierce Family Foundation. BUT WAIT. We’re not done yet. There’s still two days left, and one punishment left to accomplish… Making me walk in front of Congress wearing a sandwich board that says “I wrote two social media books, PLEASE hire me!” We’re roughly $1100 away, less than what you collectively contributed Thursday and Friday of last week. There are three things you can do: 1) Please Donate […]
