NTEN on Managing Technology to Meet Your MissionSubmitted Tue Mar 31 2009 09:03:00 GMT-0400 (EDT) by Jason Z.
NTEN wrote a book, zippily titled Managing Technology to Meet Your Mission: A Strategic Guide for Nonprofit Leaders, with chapters by some of our favorite nonprofit consultants on strategic IT planning and implementation for nonprofits.
Many of those authors will be on a virtual release party-slash-free webinar this afternoon at 2 p.m. Eastern. Rumor has it prizes are involved.
While we're on the subject of NTEN, its signature event, the annual Nonprofit Technology Conference, is just four weeks away in San Francisco. The best and brightest in nonprofit technology from around the world will be there, so it's well worth the trek -- and always highly recommended as great value for anyone in the region who's never been to one before. NTEN's blog has more to get you in the spirit, including interviews with presenters like Farra Trompeter.

Missoula 501 Club RepresentsSubmitted Fri Jul 18 2008 15:40:00 GMT-0400 (EDT)
and so can your small town. I'm not writing to brag about the 20 folks who came out to our
501 Tech Club at the 501 Lounge (yep, there's a swanky bar called the 501 Lounge). Or the 35 folks who came to our meet up last month. Or the 60 organizations who have expressed interest in the club.
Laugh it up big city dwellers. I know, these numbers seems small, but for towns with less than 100K (Mlsa is about 70K), these are great metrics.
I'm writing to encourage folks to in smaller towns to consider starting your own 501 Tech Club through NTEN as a way to create a supportive technology network. I've found NTEN to be a great umbrella organization that's worked for me to get techies and non-profits to mash and mingle. If Missoula, Montana can do it, I'm sure your town can do it too.

In the Market for Web Conference ToolsSubmitted Fri Jun 08 2007 12:15:36 GMT-0400 (EDT)
We have decided to significantly change our company's focus, thereby exiting the web conferencing business completely. Because of this business decision, we have stopped renewing existing subscriptions and have ceased selling new subscriptions for our ASAP products.Since "Convoq is an innovative provider of SaaS integrated online meeting and live chat systems", that must have been one heck of a business decision. All the same, in our two-plus years using Convoq's ASAP tool, we've had great results, so we bid our erstwhile collaborators fair tidings on their journey which we hope does not necessitate harbor in a capitalized and numbered Chapter. What it certainly does is thrust DIA back into the market for online meeting tools.

An NTC KaleidoscopeSubmitted Fri Apr 06 2007 11:50:55 GMT-0400 (EDT)
Wednesday, April 4 Vendor fair. No iPods won (note: for a Nano, I'll link to Satan himself), but an adequate haul of swag -- GoLightly has the stroke of genius with shot glasses for which their moniker is singularly apt. (But why do they come containing jelly beans?) DIA and PICnet collaborate on a good way to use them: the unofficial NTC drinking game (.pdf), readily adaptable to all manner of similar events. Our table gives away Salsa. With a smile.

Here is what I am looking for: Nonprofits are getting more and more savvy in using tech - and deploying techies who are doing good in the world. In April, more than 1,000 of these "Techies for Good" are coming to Washington DC.
