Welcome to TechSoup GreenTech's Unpower Yourself! campaign. We're having a contest to encourage you to reduce your computer's energy comsumption. Read this post, take two simple actions, complete a quick survey, and you'll be eligible to win!
Tomorrow, November 4th, TechSoup Talks and Microsoft will be conducting two free webinars which will help nonprofits and libraries learn how to reduce the environmental impact of their information technology and how to effectively use IT to improve their organizations’ efficiency. We’ll discuss ways that greening IT can help reduce energy, resource usage and costs.
TechSoup is a nonprofit that partners with corporations to distribute software and hardware donations to nonprofits and libraries. You may already know about our donation programs that can save nonprofits and libraries approximately 90% on Microsoft products and Symantec's Norton Antivirus donations but did you know we offer a typing program, discount on Flickr, and more? Attend this free webinar at 11 a.m.
The American Library Association (ALA) is encouraging public libraries to participate in the 2009-2010 Public Library Funding & Technology Access Study online survey. The survey provides an important opportunity for libraries to share information regarding their computer and Internet resources and infrastructure, as well as funding, technology training and how they function as public access technology centers in their communities.
Submit your digital story during TechSoup Global's Digital Storytelling Challenge open now through October 16th.
Full disclosure: I'm a nonprofit gal. My background and work as a professional and volunteer has always been with nonprofits and for the social service community. It's part of why I love working for TechSoup. I was a TechSoup user at three small nonprofits prior to joining the team and by being part of it, I get to hold a teeny piece of helping other nonprofits around the country and world which are doing great work for their communities.
While looking for anything to watch other than Tom Delay shake his bum on Dancing with the Stars the other night, I came across one of the new commercials from Microsoft about their upcoming release of the Windows 7 operating system. The commercial featured the cutest little spokesperson you've ever seen.
