It’s been one week since we launched the List of Change, and the response has been outstanding. In that time, as of this morning when we complete our daily update, more than 115 changebloggers will have joined the original 10 blogs that populated the list. The end result is a List of Change that’s 125 bloggers strong.
Beth Kanter, Shannon Whitley and I will donate our efforts to the Chronicle of Philanthropy when the publication turns up its new web site. In the interim, we will continue to use the List as a means to promote the 125 changebloggers, and overall, hopefully benefit the many causes they represent.
To the many changebloggers particiapting in the List: Thank you for your fantastic support. We hope the List is useful to you, and want it to help your efforts by bringing you more community awareness and participation. Please let us know how we can be of service to your efforts.
Towards that end, we’ve already taken the master OPML file, fed it into Yahoo Pipes, and created an RSS stream for the collective List of Change. We’ve also created a Twitter profile for the List of Change, which is live, but also features periodic tweets from the collective RSS stream (h/t Joe Solomon for your help).
There are more ways to promote the changebloggers via the List that we are exploring, and we’re open to your suggestions. Please feel free to use the comments here as a means of adding your thoughts.
We still hope to attract more changebloggers to the list so feel free to tell friends about it. And we hope to improve the list with more function, etc. We have already begun discussing the BlogLines metric and whether or not to continue it. Again, we’re open to suggestions as the List of Change is really a tool to benefit the larger community.
