Interesting story about how an open-standards community rolled out a high profile security fix. Of course, this is something open-source communities do all the time. But interesting nonetheless.
After two years, fundraising on Facebook through "Causes" is almost completely ineffective.
I’m leaving tomorrow evening for a trip to the Bay Area, where I’ll attending NTC, the nonprofit technology conference, with over 1400 other nonprofit technologists. As someone who remembers the 40-person 1997 NTC (or “Circuit Rider Roundup” as it was called back then) which gathered nearly all of the people doing this work at the time, NTC 2009 should be quite a blast.
Places you’ll be able to find me:
- Sunday afternoon, manning the Plone Foundation booth at the Science Fair.
- Monday, 1:30-3pm, alongside Chris Johnson from IfPeople and Steve Andersen of ONE/Northwest (soon to be Salesforce Foundation) talking about Open Civic Engagement Platforms.
- Tuesday, 10:30-12noon, serving on Laura Quinn’s panel session about Open Source CMS Platforms.
See you in San Francisco!
Joel Connelly sends a shout-out to ONE/Northwest client High Country News: "Out in Paonia, Colo., however, a bold nonprofit newspaper named High Country News has spent years hitting up readers for its Research Fund — and using the bucks to do in-depth reporting."

Campaign organizing != issue organizing. So easy to forget that.
