Aspiration and TechFinder
As TechSoup Global ramps down Techfinder.org, we are delighted to be working with them to transition the TechFinder data to a new home, and excited to hear from you about what is most needed in terms of a resource directory for nonprofit technology services.
Aspiration's Social Source Commons and Answr platforms already provide essential information on nonprofit technology; SSC is the largest inventory of software relevant to nonprofit needs, and Answr is an emerging resource that seeks to aggregate knowledge about best practices for nonprofit technology processes, from email to web publishing to social media.
Our plan is to integrate the TechFinder knowledge with these existing resources to provide contextual information on “who can help you with what”.
How will we do that? As with everything we do, we are taking a community-driven approach to the opportunity. We've already had a number of great discussions with friends and allies, and now we hope to hear from you. Email us with your thoughts and suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org. We promise to write back!
Want to be among the first to get updates as we move forward? Just let us know how to reach you, and if you're so inclined, share your thoughts on what the future of the TechFinder data should be, and how it could be most useful to you and yours.
And if you are a nonprofit technology service provider who has any concerns about what we plan to do with the TechFinder data, please be in touch, let us know your concerns and whether you'd like to opt out of any future TechFinder data deployment.
