It's been a very quiet week in the NpTech Tag Stream, giving us a little quiet time for reflection on year-end posts as well as scan for the "best of" resources, predictions, and resolutions for 2007.
If you thinking of getting your crystal ball out and making few predictions for the nonprofit tech field, beware, Jason is keeping score. Hint: If you want score higher, ditch any fear of failure and don't hedge your bets!
NpTech Tag Chatter
Here is an interesting approach to New Year's resolutions -- wiki style! TechSoup has started a wiki for Technology Resolutions for 2007 - be sure to add yours, although a few nptech bloggers have shared their resolutions here and here while a few others have given us some wonderfully reflective posts here and here. As more nptech bloggers come back from their holidays, we might see a few more over the weekend.
If one of your New Year's resolutions is to find a new job in the nonprofit tech field, than check out Deborah Finn's FAQ about the Nonprofit Tech Jobs list. Speaking of new jobs, congrats to Ed Batista on his new job!

"Best of NpTech" Tagged in the Tag Stream ...
In response to the call to tag the Best of the Best, we found some excellent bookmarks tagged with NpTech and Yearend on delicious.
I also started to review all the NpTech Tag Summaries I've written this year (here), but I decided to use an somewhat more objective measure to pick out tagged items that might represent the "Best of."
This list below represents tagged during 2006 with the nptech tag and bookmarked into delicious that and were designated as "popular." Note that popular does not necessarily mean items that were tagged by the most users with a particular tag. It shows a list of items recently tagged by the most users.
