    Leroy and the method used to stand up to him Stick writes The point of this story is that if someone is terrorizing your neighborhood sometimes it s alright to grab a stick and take a swing Social media and in this particular case Twitter has given average people like me the ability to use and invent all sorts of brand new sticks He tells AdAge that he does come up with all the tweets himself I have a group of hilarious writers pitching me hundreds of jokes a week I still write a lot of them but I m also an editor in chief gatekeeper I don t think the BPGlobalPR would have such a wide reach if I were doing all of this on my own My dad actually wrote the joke about tuna coming pre packaged in oil which made me very happy Stick says that in one week of selling BP Cares t shirts they ve raised and donated 10 000 to healthygulf org He says he ll keep doing this as long as BP has a PR department Tags links readings socialmedia activism oilspill BP twitter This entry was posted by Lana Swartz on Tuesday

    well As much as we like seeing successful groups or participatory culture used in a civic manner it s also important to remember that both creating and maintaining the structures to engender such action is difficult and some groups will face setbacks implementing these kinds of activities or may decide not to engage with them to a level everyone would agree is civic or more than philanthropy One of the topics we have talked about informally has been the issue of burnout among members of the groups we are looking at Especially since one of the groups we would like to look at are long time members as well as former members of these participatory groups it behooves us to contemplate issues of burnout If and when we interview former members of groups it is important to make sure we really can reach at some of the question in the discussion guide with regards to motivation organization and persistence I think Ito s section in persistence and transition is a good reminder that members of these various participatory groups may not stay long term with once group or another or that because of the group s organization or their personal role or stake in the work being done have decided to pull back from civic engagement type work temporarily or permanently Similar to these concerns I ve been thinking about the observation with HPA specifically regarding the fan research group they ve put together Their reference to the Browncoats and perhaps pushing them into work beyond philanthropy while admirable makes me a bit wary On our end I d like to think about the model we are trying to construct This isn t to say that we have been trying to push the participatory groups to fit a model but that over the course of this early research and further down the line we need to keep an eye out for groups who while perhaps interested in some types of civic minded activity would perhaps not be as far reaching as some of our initial case studies As I mentioned earlier much of my thoughts in these two areas beyond a somewhat cynical disposition is my wariness in falling for the easy trap of trying to model a distinct progression to move along the trajectories between participatory culture and civic engagement In a similar vein I m interested in how the HPA s fan research group will fare in terms of outreach and their own attempts both internally and externally to expand its political activities outside the scope of the Harry Potter content world and encouraging other groups such as the Browncoats to move past philanthropy into political action Again these are goals to be lauded but it will be interesting to see if members or other groups react indifferently to the shift A second form of reticence may not necessarily be an unwillingness to move up the ladder but a sense of built in cynicism within the community itself
