RebelMouse: A Fresh Personal Brand Experience

Let me introduce you to RebelMouse! RebelMouse was designed by former Huffington Post chief tech officer, Paul Berry. When Paul and I talked about it, this last spring I couldn’t wait to show everyone! Why? Because I love time saving, fresh, valuable and practical tools and RebelMouse is all of that. (Disclaimer: I do not sell RebelMouse! I’m simply a raving fan and I hope you become one too!

Your own updated and fresh home page

RebelMouse provides you with a homepage that collects all of your social media accounts into one place. The page is constantly refreshed – without you having to do anything! It gathers your fresh social media content automatically, and then allows you to rearrange your posts to highlight those that you feel deserve it (and demote those that don’t).

RebelMouse also provides you with a platform where you can create new posts and content. You can invite people to contribute to and follow your page, both of which foster the sense of community found with other social media sites. Analytics are provided to help you understand the demographics of your traffic.

The possible uses are nearly endless ranging from basic attempts to aggregate social media to advanced social marketing. RebelMouse’s features and format make it a great option for blogging and disseminating information about specific topics. For example, a page on categories of products or even famous personalities could group posts and tweets about a particular topic and give you a vast amount of information from a variety of sources. This rich complexity of information seems to be the internet at its finest.

It’s a great place for a snapshot of what your connections are interested in and talking about across all social networks. The site is also a repository of information for what interests you and what you are focused on.

A combination of the best

RebelMouse combines the greatest aspects of other social media sites into one easily digestible feed. The simplicity of Twitter is still present; you can read status updates on RebelMouse. But an additional layer of complexity is added when those Tweets are juxtaposed with other comments, news stories, and pictures that logically belong next to them.

It’s visual aspects also allow for fluid movement between pictures and text, all the while in a way that allows you to absorb information unintentionally. This format, similar to Pinterest, adds another informative layer. It provides an ease of transition between text and images that is hard to find elsewhere.

One of the reasons why this site is so useful is that we find updating our Twitter or Facebook feeds very easy, but when it comes to keeping our homepage up to date, we struggle. RebelMouse does away with that problem and takes all of the difficulty out of having an updated homepage.

Azim Premji transfers Rs 12,300 crore to his not-for-profit foundation – The Times of India

BANGALORE: Azim Premji, chairman of the Azim Premji Foundation, announced on Friday that he has transferred 295.5 million equity shares representing 12% of the total shares of Wipro Ltd, held by certain entities controlled by him, to an irrevocable trust. With this transfer (valued at about Rs 12,300 crore based on current market price), the trust’s shareholding in Wipro will go up to about 19.93%.

This trust will utilize the endowment to fund social, not-for-profit initiatives of the foundation, which are expected to scale significantly over the next few years.

The “Giving Pledge” campaign had recently announced that Premji was amongst the billionaires around the world to commit half their wealth to philanthropy. The campaign, led by billionaires Warren Buffett, Bill Gates and others, is a commitment by the world’s wealthiest individuals and families to dedicate the majority of their wealth to philanthropy.

Azim Premji Foundation is a not-for-profit organization set up in 2001 with the goal to create and sustain initiatives to contribute to a just, equitable, humane and sustainable society. The foundation has worked largely in rural India, often in close partnership with various state governments, to help contribute to the improvement of quality and equity of school education.

Currently the foundation’s work is spread across Karnataka, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Pondicherry, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar and Madhya Pradesh.

The foundation’s strategy focuses on creating and scaling up a network of institutions at various levels to contribute to improvement in the school education system and allied areas. As part of this strategy, over the last two years, the foundation has set up the Azim Premji University at Bangalore, state level institutes in three states, district level institutes in seven districts and six demonstration schools associated with the district institutes. Seven more district level institutes are in various stages of formation.

The University has been established with the social purpose of developing outstanding professionals in the domains of education and development for the entire country. The University does this through offering various kinds of degree programmes, continuing education programmes and creation of knowledge in education and allied development areas. Currently, the university offers MA Education and MA Development programmes. It offers specializations in school leadership & management and curriculum & pedagogy under MA in education, and livelihood, public policy, health & nutrition and law & governance under MA in Development.

As part of scaling up of the institutional strategy, over the next 4 to 5 years, the number of district level institutions will expand to 50-60, state level institutions to 6-8 and the university will expand to have 3,500 students with 350 faculty members across multiple programs. The foundation will also have 50-100 demonstration schools associated with district level institutions. During this period, the team size is expected to grow from the current 800 people to about 4,000 people.
