Zen and the Art of Nonprofit Technology

Notes from SOCAP09: Thoughts on Micro-Donations, Crowd-Sourcing, Radical Collaborations, and Mobile Tech

Tech Soup Blog

This post is cross-posted on my personal blog and on the NetSquared Blog. On Thursday, I attended the unconference/open space portion of SOCAP09 (Social Capital Markets 2009). I found a few tech sessions that were relevant to the purposes of TechSoup, and as is always the case, I collected the business cards of some intelligent people doing good work. The spontaneous conversations in the halls, are really the reason why we go to conferences, right?

10NTC: Open Data and Transparency: What's the Carrot?

Tech Soup Blog

This morning, NetSquared hosted a special unconference at NTC on open data. It was a fascinating discussion that touched both on many of the reasons why nonprofits are taking a look at data sharing and on why consequential data sharing can sometimes be challenging or unfeasible for nonprofits. Jake Brewer talked about how his organization, The Sunlight Foundation , has played an instrumental role in the development of new data transparency standards in the US government.

The event was presented by Twilio and Open 311 , one of the organizations leading the charge to make government data public, accessible, and usable.
