WHO WINS WHAT IN GAZA ?
Our organization uses technical volunteers to provide free email and web hosting to 33 organizations. We just finished a $20,000 http://mass-service.org grant to recruit, train and support volunteers in providing on-site computer support to 6 organizations. We'd like to share our successes and failures over the past 5 years. The format of the workshop is Q&A. If the workshop participants don't have questions for us, we will have questions for them.
With all of the new, New, NEW web technology and acronyms flying around, it's easy to lose sight of what the tools really mean to you and your organization beyond just keeping up with the Jones'. Starting with key internal and external goals: programs, outreach, fundraising; learn what bedrock plans and ideals you should put in place and foster before even turning on a computer. This session will NOT teach you how to Blog, Tag, or Twitter but you will leave knowing how to better evaluate and implement your web technology needs and dreams.

Web 2.0 has changed the way nonprofit organizations and their supporters communicate and give online.

This session will provide a general introduction to MySpace and Change.org, discuss the best and worst practices, how to get started, and introduce strategies to merge these social-networking Web sites with your Web 1.0 communications and fundraising efforts, such as your website, e-newsletters, and online fundraising and e-advocacy campaigns.
