[vox-outreach] [fwd] [OS:N:] Non Profits & Open Source

----- Forwarded message from Ignatius Hsu -----

From: Ignatius Hsu
Subject: [OS:N:] Non Profits & Open Source
To: Open source advocacy in education and government <open-source-now-list@redhat.com>

Here's a good resource. Choosing and Using Open Source Software: A 
primer for nonprofits, published by NOSI (Nonprofit Open Source Initiative)

For those that are in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, there will 
be a forum on the evening of April 22 at the Provisions Library on "Open 
Source/Open Technologies."

About the event:
??? Nonprofit Open Source Initiative - Michelle Murrain
Michelle Murrain has been involved in software development, particularly 
as a tool for biomedical research and education, since 1979. Michelle 
has been involved in developing content and applications for the web, 
specifically for research and educational purposes, since 1994. In 1995, 
while Associate Professor of Biology at Hampshire College, Michelle 
started a consulting practice that serves the non-profit and educational 
sectors, primarily in the areas of developing database-driven web-sites, 
cross-platform networks and the implementation of Linux, and strategic 
technology planning.

Michelle will talk about Open Source software, why nonprofit 
organizations and activists should care about it, not just for the 
cost-effective access to technology, but because of the underlying ethos 
of Open Source development.

- Ignatius Hsu
