10. You need more nonprofit techie friends. Who else will let you rant for an hour about
your server and really understand your pain?
9. Chocolate mousse and carrot cake. Made by Bullwinkle and Bugs Bunny.
(Ok, we made that last part up.)
8. In terms of bang for your buck, it’s the best professional development investment
you can make for yourself and your organization’s technology.
7. You really want to see Office 2010 and Windows 7. We have breakout sessions
6. Jeff Forster has devised a musical number involving disco, Snoop Doggy Dogg and
the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. Just kidding. We don’t know what he’s planning,
so we’ll be as surprised as you will.
5. You will get one of the coolest USB drives on the planet. Let’s just say wood grain
is involved and they are fabulous!
4. Social media is a prominent theme. And Dave Tinker had a part in Where The Wild
Things Are, so he can definitely speak to measuring social media ROI like a beast.
(There we go fibbing again.)
3. Mushrooms. Not the kind people ate in the 60’s either. Think Portabella and stuffed.
2. You could win a prize. Among other things, we are giving away a year-long family
membership to the Frick Art & Historical Center!
And the number one reason to attend TechNow 2010:
1. Katya Andresen’s keynote speech “Homer Simpson for Nonprofits.” With a title like that,
it has to be good. D’oh!
