OC's 8th annual conference is excited to be in Lowell, MA. Co-located with the Grassroots Radio Conference, we look to expand our impact in using grassroots communication tools for social change.
The 2007 Conference will present tools intended to ease the challenges nonprofits and organizing groups face in meeting their missions. More effective use of email, dynamic websites, ideal data use, new social networking tools, and rich online media are technologies that should and can be used by organizations and movements to achieve thier goals.
The conference will kick off with Penguin Day Lowell (June 22). The day will be devoted to highlighting Free and Open Source Software (F/OSS) solutions for NPO techies and managers. A full range of workshops will take place on Saturday, June 23rd and our co-location with the Grassroots Radio Conference will allow us to expand our mission to bring the technology of radio to communities.
As always, the Grassroots Use of Technology conference is one of the only events that brings technology and endusers together, allowing us to learn from each other.
This event is also presented in collaboration with the CTC VISTA Project at UMass Boston. Penguin Day Lowell is being organized in collaboration with the Nonprofit Open Source Initiative, Aspiration, and the Community Software Lab.
