I Installed Windows 8 and Lived to Tell the Tale...

I feel like I should upgrade to Windows 8. I hear it is faster, has better performance and those tiles look so pretty!  I also want the latest version of Microsoft Office. The ability to edit PDF’s in MS Word is exactly what I need. But... I don’t like change. I don’t want to learn a whole new operating system or interface. I am also not sure where to start with the upgrade process. And did I mention I don’t have time for this?!

Friday Feed - Great resources from the web - September 30, 2011

Friday Feed is back! In order to stay up to date on what's going on in the world of technology - and nonprofit technology in particular - I follow quite a few blogs and twitter feeds. There's a lot of great content out there but if you don't have the time to stay on top of things (and even if you do!) it can be overwhelming. So, for those of you who have less time to do all this "listening" on nonprofit technology, I'm posting a blog each Friday with the top resources I found in the last week.
