The topics discussed here grow out of the bread-and-butter 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.

Software for Free?

We've seen some vendors price their software by the number of contacts in your database. By the number of emails you send. By bandwidth used. We've chosen to do it by the staff size of your organization, licensing the software by user count. The idea is to be fair - to charge less to the smaller organization. To charge more to the organization making more use of the tools.

But sometimes this doesn't work. There are organizations with quite a few full-time staff members, squeezing by on a very tight budget and doing very valuable work. Our pricing plan just doesn't help them. They really need the software - but they need way more licenses than they can afford.

To enable some organizations in this bind to obtain the software they need, we've decided to give away one system each quarter. Here's the full announcement. Drop Doria a note if you are interested.
