Shape the big picture of the Certified Email Debate!  Help us discover how paying for email delivery would impact your organization and the sector by taking a brief survey:

AOL and Yahoo! have recently announced plans to utilize Goodmail's CertifiedEmail program. The announcement has generated controversy, both within the general Internet community and amongst nonprofit emailers. An Open Letter signed by groups including, Democracy in Action, and the EFF criticized the plan for creating a two-tiered Internet, with poorer service for those who did not pay the "email tax." An announcement by AOL that nonprofits would be offered free accreditation services did not end the protests. At the same time, organizations such as the American Red Cross have welcomed the Goodmail system as a way to avoid the phishing attacks and fraud in which well-known organiza tions such as the Red Cross have been targeted.

Love Compumentor, their people and the whole basic idea behind NetSquared.

 And would like to pose a challenge: conferences and "Gala events" are to often about thinking rather than doing. I challenge the folks in this community to spend the next 196 days doing. And spend the conference and gala celebrating what has been done.

 I wrote a paper a bit ago talking about Web 2.0 Collaboration for Nonprofits. The basic thesis is that Web 2.0 Collaboration is about "Moving to a culture where the first question is “how can others leverage what I’m doing” rather than “how can I protect myself from other leveraging what I am doing.”
