BC Green Directory adds Community Building Tools

By uncleweed on September 8, 2008 - 8:02pm

In the beginning, happyfrog.ca was created to help green-minded citizens find businesses and organizations which fit their values and displayed the results sorted by proximity to conserve transportation resources.

Then, happyfrog invited the public to add reviews to the thousands of listings, as well as engage in a community Q&A project to share tips and solve problems.

Now, all the "frogs" can auto-magically share their green favourites with the public with Myhappyfrog with a unique address to share with friends.

Members can now see all the reviews, questions & answers, and blog posts they've submitted so far via a personal address which looks something like this: http://happyfrog.ca/user/daveo

Share favourite green bizes and orgs

Members can add any listing as a "favourite" to share their preferred coffee shop, yoga studio, or organic market with the public and then add a badge to their blog or site to let people know about their happyfrog page.

From the Speak Up 2008 pamphlet [PDF]:

Online technologies are radically advancing our freedoms, but are they also enabling unparalleled invasions of privacy? The first topic of Speak Up 2008 will examine issues from data mining and profiling, surveillance, the use of search engines, cookies, spy ware and email to the security of public records on the internet and confidentiality of financial and medical information.

Questions for discussion include should government and business compile, share or sell your personal information? Should you expect privacy in a public forum like the internet? Who is ultimately responsible for dealing with privacy issues: the government, industry, individuals? And can these activities actually be policed? Come and share your insights and opinions.
