Congratulations to Marnie Webb for winning the 2008 NTEN Award at the Nonprofit Technology Conference in New Orleans. As the winner of last year's award I got to introduce her. Here's what I said:
In 2001, I tried to start blogging. I set up a blog, wrote two posts and stopped. I tried again in 2002, 2003, and 2004. The same results. In 2005, I attended a session at the NTC by this year's winner called "So, you wanna blog?" I was so inspired that I decided to commit to blogging. This person has also inspired me to learn about all things web2.0 and how it can help the nonprofit sector!
Britt Bravo has a write up on NetSquared. Vince Stehl was also given a life time achievement award. (Holly Ross, NTEN Executive Director, captured him on Utterz about Mother's, a famous New Orleans Restaurant.)
Oh, I also got a people's choice award (popular vote) The person you turn to most for trusted advice (for nonprofit technology issues).
