Sigh. This group was described as "primarily for actual developers" and "more hardcore discussion of nonprofit technology," but lately it's all ads and companies pitching their (proprietary, black-box) software.

With regret, this isn't a community I'm interested in being a part of. See some of you elsewhere.

For those of you who will be at +NTEN #13NTC , +Rachel Weidinger and I will be presenting on "Building Movements: Beyond Emails, Campaigns, and Organizations" — we're really excited and hope you can join us, Thursday at 10:30 in Marquette I (visit the link below for the conference link).

TAKEAWAYS:

- Strategizing with other organizations to build interconnected campaigns. Giving up a little message control and gaining a lot of social power. Big listening across your movement with social data.

- Community management at (huge) scale. Technology that fosters movement building -- and technology that stunts it.

- Supporting the bubbling up of stories, and amplifying the passion and compassion of activists. Communications platforms across a movement: In person, on Twitter, over email, in blogs, through webinars and postcards.

Does anyone know how to report spam being sent through Convio to Convio or Blackbaud? I can't find any information on either site to report that one of their clients is spamming (without a mailing address, even).

Just a warning to watch out for fake domain renewal scams like Domain Registry of America. Nonprofits are at particular risk of being exploited because of low information and public registration data, and I've seen at least two almost make the unintentional switch.

You don’t need to and shouldn’t register your nonprofit website with Domain Registry of America — don’t be fooled!

Domain Registry of America sends the owner of a website domain an official-looking “expiration notice,” urging the owner to “act today” to prevent “loss of your online identity making it difficult for your customers and friends to locate you.” Yet Domain Registry of America vastly overcharges for domain registration — their entire business model is built on swindling people into switching their registration. Don’t let it happen to you!

Hey, maybe this'll get me using Google Plus more! Thanks to +Allan Benamer and +Deborah Elizabeth Finn for the invite. I'm a nonprofit consultant doing a lot of work in a) Drupal development and b) communications and advocacy work. I have a background in community organizing. I'm active in both the Drupal community (I'm a DA member and on the docs team) and NTEN (I'm one of the Community of Practice-Drupal facilitators).
