Anyone making good use of Microsoft Office Live?

I'm just getting started with it. Looks VERY comprehensive and exciting. Am having trouble getting my blog going --- think its a software bug. Have Microsoft Live support working on it. Otherwise, it sure looks interesting. Would love to hear about your experience with it!

p.s. I'm brand new to the DFW area AND to Encore!

Technology help when funds are down

You don't need Dr. O at SocialEdge.org to tell you that funding for nonprofits is down. What's interesting is what he recommends nonprofits should do. Four of his suggestions include technology:
* Bring in a new generation of donors with new technology.
* Examine your costs. Can you save significant money by virtualizing your staff and operations or by sharing space and back office operations with other NPOs
* Engage with the new "crowdsourcing" and online giving organizations like Care2

Demonstrating some fun techology
