Would love to hear your tips for people heading to the #13NTC - plus any fun Minneapolis recommendations!
 
Are you headed to the Nonprofit Technology Conference (NTC) this year? We're putting together tips to share with attendees and we'd love to hear suggestions from our community. Let us know any tips or local Minneapolis recommendations you have!

Hell's Kitchen in Minneapolis is near to the hotel, and has amazing Sunday brunch (and cool atmosphere anytime!).

Starting today, the world’s governments meet behind closed doors on the future of the Internet. Some governments want to increase censorship and regulate the web.

Tell them to keep it #freeandopen by signing the petition: http://goo.gl/tU9uY

Fresh case studies! Ten nonprofits tell us about their transition to the cloud. Has your organization had success with a similar change?
