I had the opportunity to speak with Steve Bolan at Next in Nonprofits about nonprofit organizations doing technology planning and outreach using open-source tools and working with content management systems and planning. Having been in nonprofit work for the better part of this decade and the last, it was interesting to reflect in my current role (as a CTO in a for profit agency) with my past brain (as a nonprofit executive).

It was a fun conversation that wandered onto many topics in nonprofit tech (the value of open source, The Gizra Way, and user design and interaction), the bottom line to which is that we need to think about our users first and our technology second when it comes to building web projects.
