Indie music, Creative Commons : A whole new model thriving on the Web

by a  data-cke-saved-href= photo by Vik Nanda I am back from "vacation." It involved some nice time in Maine, during which our 22-month-old learned many words, including the fave of the week, "LOON!

Probably unwise, going offline: the working parent's dilemma

I am really excited to talk more about all sorts of things... internal Web collaboration strategies, new Web 2.0/Old Skool projects on the horizon, and the ever-changing work of the non-profit techie. It looks like my org might have another year of funding (fingers still crossed, but we might have made it!). I think, very possibly, there's a year of really engaging work ahead of us, and I hope we will be learning a lot. I plan to share what we learn here. At the moment, I am juggling my nonprofit techie work with a cute but obstinate toddler, and a terminally ill parent.
