About this blog
|This blog is a chapter in the web-wide discussion of non-profit technology issues. |
How does this discussion differ from those on other blogs in the non-profit space? I'd like to try to keep my focus mainly on the bread-and-buter issues that confront my consulting and software clients on a daily basis. We'll talk about prosaic stuff like Membership Management, Meetings and Events Management and Fundraising, broader ideas like security and software project management, and the social, cultural, and organizational issues that impact IT decision-making.
In our work implementing enterprise software systems for our clients, we frequently encounter moments where what appears to be an information systems problem turns out to be actually a organizational development issue. The relationship between information technology and the broader life of the organization will be a major theme in these page.
This blog is built on a three-column blogger template by Thur Broeders. While three column layouts are common on many blogging engines, the templates provided by blogger are all two-column, so I was excited to find that Thur taken the time to set these up. Of course I've fiddled with the css some, to getting the spacing, colors and
bullets just the way I like 'em. It's designed for 1024 x 768 resoultion or higher - at 800x600 it will look a bit cramped!
But of course there are brief dissertations on art, literature and society thrown in when I just can't contain myself.
