Collaborate on notes in Google Keep

Nice feature addition.
I've been wanting to love Google Keep for a long time now, but one of the main things holding it back has been the lack of sharing (what good is it to be able to keep a grocery list, for example, if you can't share it as editable with your spouse, or significant other).

Looks like that's beginning to change!...

Nonprofits: Improve mobile engagement with these 5 steps

The most important shifts in nonprofit communications in the next five years will center around mobile technology. Let’s consider the facts:

- 58 percent of all American adults now own a smart phone.
- 79 percent of smartphone owners also use their devices to shop.
- 30 percent of consumers now read their email exclusively on mobile devices. 
- The percentage of donations made from mobile devices in the last year has grown 205 percent. 

These are just a few of dozens of statistics that indicate how important it is for nonprofits to start paying attention to mobile.

However, I’m surprised by the number of nonprofit organizations that are missing out on some simple ways improve their communication strategy for the mobile revolution. 

Read my latest post on +Pursuant's blog:

 Go directly to the +SlideShare presentation I made with +Haiku Deck:

How are you shifting your communications and engagement strategy for a mobile support and donor base?

Create a Chromebook-like experience on your Mac

I really want the Chromebook to work for me, but it just doesn't fulfill my professional needs. (That's OK. It's not meant to be everything to everybody.)

But I do love its simplicity. And the Chrome App Launcher ( means I can have some "Chromebook goodness" even on my Mac.

Read how:

Have you tried the Chrome App Launcher yet on your Mac?

Sorry, +Rod Pitts. My only other suggestion would be to use something like "App Delete" and remove everything, even Chrome and download it again.

[In The News] Read my interview about nonprofit technology trends

I was honored to be part of +Software Advice's annual Fundraising Software and Donor Buyer Research Project. Bottom line: Nonprofits have a lot to gain from incorporating technology into how they engage and build relationships with supporters and donors.

Read the interview and download the report:

What role does technology play in donor management?

If you need me, send a smoke signal

If we lose the ability to influence others through verbal and non-verbal ques, we will have lost something that can never be replaced by something in our pocket, on our desk, or in our briefcases and messenger bags. In fact, we’ll lose something so critical to business and success that we’ll be crippled forever as a result: the human connection.

Content Activist | Digital Explorer
I'm a natural disruptor, writer, voracious reader, digital communications junkie, completely geeky about marketing and technology, and committed to leading change through brand publishing. 

I call myself a content activist and a digital explorer, but my business card says senior vice president for Pursuant. My favorite topics include leadership, technology, communications, business development, and fundraising. (Not necessarily in that order.)

As often as I can, I spend time with my wife and two young boys. When I'm not on an airplane, I like hanging out in my little cottage in the backyard where I work.

I write about 10,000 words every week.

Fantastic Service! I came in because the tire on my van was low. They repaired the tire quickly and did NOT charge me a penny for the service. I was blown away.
