NTEN Conference

Coke, Cherry Blossoms, and Cha Cha Cha


Sitting next to Peter and gazing out at the Washington Monument, I realized that there weren't too many better ways to end my VISTA service than flying up the Potomac.  Just an hour earlier, I had been in a scowling mood, but the D. C. evening skyline changed that pretty quickly.

For those who weren't there, the NTEN (Non-profit Technology Network) Conference was a smashing success.  People from both sides of the Atlantic came to Washington to sip beer, talk tech, and figure out how to use technology to benefit society.  I was fortunate enough to meet people from California, Illinois, New York, Manchester, London, and D. C. itself.  Washington had splendid weather, and the cherry blossoms were in bloom.

Drupal and HTMLing


On the first week with DANEnet, and now I'm relearning everything I once knew about HTML and then some!  I'm also going to be administrating some sites using Drupal, so if anyone here uses Drupal and would be a good resource, it would be great if I could throw questions at you if I needed it!

 And I have my meeting for food stamps on February 7th!

 Also, to clarify, is there NO CTC conference this year?  And what are the exact dates of the NTEN conference in DC?  Let me know, thanks!

Hey Catherine,

Of course, Ben Sheldon's doing the Drupal.

Also, our guest blogger this month, former VISTA Morgan Sully is also doin the Drupal.

And, Rebecca White, current CTC VISTA is doin the Drupal.

Both Aliya and Ben will know more than I...

Brittney Fosbrook in San Francisco and also Jessie Rothschuh in LA. John Miller in Lowell as well might have some answers.

Basically, ask away your questions and we'll try to help.

Also, I'm trying to set up a strictly Drupal conference call, which when it happens, you should definitely join.

Are We NTEN Members?


I see on the CTC website that we are now in a partnership with NTEN. Does that mean that we are members and can get the discounted rate when we sign up for the conference?
