2007: New Year's Technology Resolutions

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

To be more productive with the time I spend online and put some of the suggestions that Ed Hallowell in his book, Crazy Busy suggests about avoiding online time wasters. To stop being a digital slob in terms of my hard drive, tagging habits, flickr photo annotation, blog posts, etc. It probably means to slow down and not try to do so much at such a frenetic pace. But maybe I can be fast and neater? My horrible computer crash has inspired several resolutions about crash proofing my pc.

The 2007 NTC Conference is around the corner, well in April, but some discount pricing deadlines coming right up. I'm excited because this will my seventh one!

And, this year I will be attending the conference and coordinating the Day of Service too!
