Doing Good, Not Just Writing about It

Jeremiah Owyang had a great point on my post yesterday. Why not actually use social networking to do good yourself, not just observe it? After all that's kinda the point of technology giving us all a platform. So I'm urging everyone to donate to the Red Cross or World Vision. More info on Jeremiah's blog. He points out that we're incredibly vulnerable to an earthquake in the Bay Area, so if nothing else it's good karma! I plan on donating. What about you?
