Oh No!

I thought I was a gadget queen. Guess I was wrong. Magni (a fellow Linuxchix) definitely has me beat. You should see her wish list! And, to top it off, she had to introduce me to a new site, called ShinyShiny. It's a good thing I packed my credit cards (just joking, but it certainly feels that way.)

Nonprofit software and Nonprofit mission

For some of you, this is relatively old news. And for many of you, this will be completely new. A while ago, in my not-so-long-ago life as a nonprofit technology consultant, I had reason to come across a few large companies (I like to call them the 800 pound gorillas) in the nonprofit software field.

I know, I say this, and you shake your head. Anyway, since podcasting is almost, well, passé for the ubergeeks, it's time for me to talk about it.

Professional Bloggers?!

I happened across this site, called "View from the Isle" which landed in my RSS feed from iPodder.org. At some point, I'll post about Podcasting, since I know a lot of folks don't know a lot about it. But back to "View from the Isle" - it is a blog by a professional blogger, who does things like blog consulting. He is a founder and board member of the Pro-Bloggers Association.

Gadgetaholics Anonymous

It's time to start a new 12 step program: "GA" for Gadgetaholics Anonymous. My friends know well I  should go to meetings, perhaps daily, if such a new 12 step program were to appear.
