On Tuesday, March 24, two wonderful worlds will collide for the better of Portland-based nonprofits and technology geeks alike. Are you a nonprofit that thinks the server is just the guy that brings you bacon and pancakes? Are you a geek looking to serve a nonprofit all that bacon knowledge you have bubbling over in your head? We will try to match nonprofit needs and give you a few hours to talk one-on-one with a technology know-it-all.
NTEN 501 Tech Club and NetTuesday join forces with Day On. Day On connects nonprofit organizations that need advice and assistance with volunteers who are ready to help. Their first project was Geeks Day On, a day of service during MLK Day, Monday, January 19, 2009 where geeks offered free technology and Internet communications advice and assistance to nonprofit organizations. They have agreed to offer their brain power for a higher calling.
This is a test run of what we hope will convert into an live help desk. More than that, a place for two incredible communities in Portland to connect and creatively come to solutions on how to make the world a better place using technology!
Please fill out this brief online survey so that we might better help you:
Food: Aboutus is kind enough to let us bring in beer and treats, so if you are able, please bring something to share.
