An Ode to Our Longest Running Net2 Local Organizers

Ed and Katie at one of their first Net2 events, with event speaker Mena Trott (center)We recently got word from our beloved organizers at Net2 Local in Houston that they need to hand off the organizer baton. Having spent 6 years hosting monthly networking events, they are our longest-running Net2 Local community organizers. Like all of the other Net2 Local organizers around the world, we feel so lucky to work with them to help spread the knowledge, networking, and fun, around using technology for social change. 

To Katie, Ed, and the entire Shipul Team: Thank you for all that you have done for the social innovation community in Houston and around the world. As our Co-CEO, Marnie Web put it “I totally understand the need for change but, dammit, we're going to miss having you two so engaged in the Net2 Local in Houston.” You’ve always performed above and beyond our expectations and have helped countless people make the connections they need to make a difference in the world. 

An Ode to the Houston Organizers

Since December two-thousand-and-five
You’ve helped #nptech in Houston survive

By all accounts the events were #winning
Now new organizers are just beginning

Together, we’ll keep Net2 Houston Alive

Well, I’m really not a poet. But I sure hope it made you laugh!

Big virtual hugs from the Net2 HQ team to the entire Net2 Houston past, present, and future team. Congrats on all you’ve accomplished and a massive thanks for all that you’ve done. We look forward to keeping Net2 in Houston going strong!

Entertainment News – Whitney Houston, What did She do This Time?


Lilly Allen is in the doghouse with her record label. It seems the singer gave a copy of a cover song to a radio show host to play on his weekly New York show. The reason EMI is unhappy is because the played song is a cover of the Britney Spears track, Womanizer, and listeners stole the Lilly Allen version and put it all over the internet. Whoops, is right. Gossip around town points that J-Lo and hubbie Marc Anthony are having marital issues. Jennifer got spotted without her wedding ring, Marc hit the town in Vegas alone AND their 8.5-million-dollar Bel Air is up for grabs. However, on the record, the couple's publicist commented that they are doing great. Whitney Houston's stepmother is suing the singer over the wishes of Houston's deceased father. According to reports, the stepmom, Barbara Houston, is claiming that the singer erroneously kept the money from her dad's 1-million-dollar insurance policy instead of using it to pay-off the more than 700-thousand-dollar mortgage on his condo. Barbara currently resides in the residence and neither sides lawyers have commented on the case.
