OK, let’s get down to the business of getting this nonprofit going! Lots of things to say and report in upcoming blog posts, but I’m most excited about preparing for having a student intern. This snazzy internship will be the Acting Chief Executive Officer of the Digital Storymakers Foundation.
Digital Storymakers Foundation is a registered nonprofit in North Carolina, but so far, Storymakers is just a twinkle in my eye. That doesn’t really cut it for federal nonprofit status and all the fun things that come with that – I hope to build a strong community around this effort. We will eventually be producing open-source story management systems (rather than content management systems) for community-based digital archiving websites. Storymakers wants you and your family or community to preserve and own your stories forever. But right now we need to build a little infrastructure. That’s where an intern can help.
