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.

Zen and the Art of NonProfit Technology

I've been called a Luddite in these pages before (in response to Software Bricklaying) but this is the first time it's been meant as a compliment. Michelle Murraine gives me the title after quoting approvingly from my posting on "interruptive technologies" and the need to manage them to permit attention. But after all, her new blog, Zen and the Art of NonProfit Technology is subtitled "conscious, minimalist, neoluddite perspectives on nonprofit technology." So it's not really all that surprising. But what does Michelle mean by that term?

Michael Stein might not like being called a "neo-luddite", but my definition is anyone who asks questions that potentially makes us think about our assumptions about technology, and it's present course.

Add her to your nptech readling list!

Thanks for the mention. I hope that I'm bringing a useful point of view to the space.
