On the evening of October 1st, at Venture X, 47 people from local nonprofits, businesses and technology community gathered and discussed Google Plus Local and Google Glass. It was yet the largest group at our meeting. You can see the impression from the meeting in photos, videos and tweets. You’ll also find links to the slide decks for the Google Plus Presentation by yours truly as well as the Google Glass presentation by Homer Gaines, our resident #glassExplorer.
Steve & Kat from Pull Focus Films delivered one-two knockout combo on great campaign film. Steve facilitated conversation around a variety of campaign films of various cause. Kat then followed with key tips to consider when making your campaign video.
Let’s give Thanks4Good and celebrate local nonprofits and social change groups that do amazing — yet often unrecognized — work with technology.
We asked the PDXTech4Good community to nominate nonprofits and social good groups for their outstanding use of tech. Two weeks later we received 20 nominations for 19 remarkable groups (one group was nominated twice!) and now it’s time to vote. Help celebrate local tech for good and vote for your favorite groups: http://tinyurl.com/thanks4goodvote.
September was a big month for Tech & Social Change Baltimore! We held our first hands-on workshop and worked with partners to showcase nonprofit technology at two events during Baltimore Innovation Week. If you missed any of the events, check out the notes from the sessions.
I want to take a moment to welcome all of our new members! Thank you so much for joining our community, and we hope to see you at an event soon. If you have any ideas or suggestions please contact us via our Meetup page.
---> Thank you to everyone who made it to our September event! <---

A huge thanks to all 33 NetSquared organizers who filled out this year’s survey.
The goal was to take the temperature of the community and get a sense of how organizers are doing. We want to identify what is working and what could be improved.
The survey will help set a baseline for next year’s questions, allowing TechSoup Global to see how you think we’re doing year-over-year. The full survey results are published in the organizer’s handbook.
