A Few Months Ago I Posted ... Posted by Sarah Mozelle, Mar 07 2014 A few months ago I posted about an open-source altar that I was starting at my local spiritual center, which also hosts a Thursday Awakin circle. The altar debuted in early January and it has held a fascinating flow of objects as they have been offered and taken. In fact, the energy of the altar has transformed an entire corner of the main room into an intimate chapel of sorts. We asked that objects not be something that had been purchased, rather a one-time gift that one was ready to pass along, a found object or a self-made creation. The community has embraced the project and we'll continue keeping the wooden table available for as long as the space feels like it's breathing.
Moin Khan: Fueled By Love-America To Pakistan Posted by Bela Shah, Mar 07 2014 Driven and fueled by a fierce love for his country, Pakistan born Moin Khan decided to ride his motorcycle with the Pakistan flag flapping in the wind, while stopping along the way to share his message with anyone that asked: “I am Pakistani. I am a Muslim. And I am peace loving.” What seems unbelievable is this: Moin was determined to kick off his motorcycle journey at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California and not end, rain or shine, until he reached half way around the world to his beloved Pakistan. When I first heard about Moin’s story, I was completely astonished, wondering over and over how one could be so committed and clear about his purpose. Through our Global Awakin conversation with Moin, as the stories along his journey beautifully unfolded, I realized that the “how” doesn’t even matter when you have the kind of faith that ...

Pavi's Talk Goes Viral Posted by Bhoutik Mehta, Mar 07 2014 We now have a new reigning champion for the most viral ServiceSpace talk ... Giftivism, by Pavi Mehta, delivered last year in France! At 80 thousand views, its a talk that has spread globally, attracted lots of energy towards ServiceSpace -- and several dozen more speaking invites for Pavi (including one from the Indian Army!). What prompted me to share this was actually a tweet (and then a blog) we noticed from someone who has 609 thousand followers. :) The ripples continue. If you haven't seen it, it's definitely worth a look as Pavi gracefully shares the message of #Giftivism. :)
In-Turnship :) Posted by Audrey Lin, Mar 07 2014 Feeling grateful to have completed a 30-day in-turn-ship with many kindred friends. We concluded our month with a few days with Gandhian elders at the Vinoba Ashram. As young in-turns, we have many miles yet to walk but happy to have taken a few more steps in that direction.
Apps Vs. Mobile Web Posted by Peter Ruan, Mar 07 2014 It turns out that people don't really surf the web on their mobiles. They use native apps. Something to keep in mind as we build our mobile strategy.
La Vida Robot Posted by DailyGood.org, Mar 07 2014 In a second-floor windowless room on the rundown Carl Hayden Community High School campus, four students huddle around an odd, 3-foot-tall frame constructed of PVC pipe. At the top sits a black, waterproof briefcase containing a nest of hacked processors, minuscule fans, and LEDs. It's a cheap but astoundingly functional underwater robot capable of recording sonar pings and retrieving objects 50 feet below the surface. The four teenagers who built it are all undocumented Mexican immigrants who came to this country through tunnels or hidden in the backseats of cars. But over three days last summer, these kids from the desert proved they are among the smartest young underwater engineers in the country. Read on to hear their story. [Full Story]
