There seems to always be a plethora of great opportunities available to nonprofits for learning and engaging with each other and the technology field. A couple recent things to mention:
1. 2nd Annual DoGooderTV Nonprofit Video Awards
See3Communications and NTEN are co-sponsoring the video awards for a second year. The theme this year is, “From the Ground Up: Using Technology to Engage Constituents and Make the World a Better Place.” Entries can include video, animation, or mash-up from a nonprofit organization or in support of one. The entry must have been released originally in 2007. Visit DoGooderTV for more information about the awards.
2. Open Source Software Series from NTEN
The Nonprofit Open Source Initiative has partnered with NTEN to bring a monthly series of webinars on open source technology for nonprofits. The first one is: “The Key is the COmmunity: How to Get Support for Open Source Software.” You can see the 12 events’ details on the NTEN site and register!
3. Portland area gatherings
On Monday, we had a terrific start to the 501 Tech Club Brown Bag Lunch Series with Marshall Kirkpatrick sharing many ins and outs of RSS. This coming Tuesday, January 22nd, is the first Portland Net Tuesday. If you missed Monday’s event, do not fear! There are notes available here.
