S4G, the un-mediated, not moderated social platform

Have you ever thought you have something to “express” with a social dimension but never had the opportunity to do it?

Then S4G is what you are looking for:

  • Open, unrestricted and easy to use
  • Three mediums to choose from: TEXT, VIDEO, PHOTO
  • A way to express your ideas, reflections and expertise, on social issues and broader development and society at large
  • You do not need to be an expert but just passionate about what you share

Understanding the possibility and opportunity in partnering with the government work has often been off the focus to many organizations. Government in any country is the biggest institution to deliver services and address issues. And while look at moon, the stars fade away. NGOs and other not for profits' role should be to helping government adjust the site and see things in totality. ;evolusun

Kathmandu by Thomas Bell [New book alert!]

Micro Text Sharing
Categories: 

"A wonderfully discursive account of the personal discovery of a great city. Looping through centuries and slaloming between journalism and history, memoir, mythology and gossip, Tom Bell has written a portrait of Kathmandu like no other, taking us from Manjushree to the Maoists via witches, colonial Orientalists, LSD cults, spies wars and old Serge Gainsbourg movies. A splendidly eccentric and enjoyable first book."
